Quotes & Awards

  • “Graves is a master of visual detail, and his journey unfolds with the picturesque clarity of a film.”  Publishers Weekly
  • “Graves offers this outstanding memoir about his tours and travels…Henry Strozier brings the stories to life with his earthy tone and steadfast delivery. Strozier could fool listeneres into thinking they’re listening to Graves himself as his wise, old voice carries a certain weightiness. Listening is an easy and relaxing experience that will grab the collective imagination of the audience and whisk it off to another time and place. Graves is a writer to be admired.”


  • “A frank portrait of a writer journeying toward understanding of his abilities and subject.”


  • “A gentle, civilized memoir, as comfortable as an eiderdown but not without a certain goatishness, from the rustic sage of Texas…Graves concentrates on…exotic but identifiable experiences into which readers can pleasurably insinuate themselves.”
