Books I love lately: Redeployment, by Phil Klay, and Barefoot Dogs, by Antonio Ruiz-Camacho. Send Antonio a tweet at . Phil Klay is at @PhilKlay.
Loved this NPR story on ribeye steak by John Burnett. Great first line of audio: “The first week of March is ultrasound week at the R.A. Brown Ranch in Throckmorton, Texas…”
Speaking of radio, I’ll see you on KOOP-FM, 91.7 FM, Friday at 2:00 PM, when I’ll be Thorne Dreyer’s guest on his Rag Radio show. You can stream the program here.
We’ll be talking a lot about my new book, “1960s Austin Gangsters.” In case you had not heard, the book was published on March 9 by History Press and the first printing sold out about a week ago. With luck, copies of the second printing should be reaching stores some time early next week. The Statesman reported that “Austin Gangsters” was the top-selling book in Austin the week of April 5th.
