The first major autobiography by a Texas poet, this noteworthy account traces the life and times of a poet, publisher, critic, and teacher from his childhood to the present day. This remarkable life is examined through the works it produced--25 books in the fields of poetry, fiction, translation, jazz history, and book reviewing. Proving that the literary and intellectual life in Texas far surpasses the state's stereotypes, this record shows how the poet was instrumental in connecting Texas with many Latin American writers as well as with a wide world of music.UT was that on the Graduate Record Exam my scores were low for being admitted to the University. ... and clothes in the used station wagon that I had bought through a brother-in-law of Popoa#39;s, and headed for the capital city. ... fly in the ointment of my plans for attending graduate school at too my essay on Gertrude Stein.
