In 1992 he edited and wrote 'Harvey Penick's Little Red Book', the bestselling sports book in U.S. history....But all the time, Bud [has been] writing novels which seem to be reaching for some truth about Texas life that needed to be explained-books like 'But Not For Love'.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In 1954, syndicated-columnist Harry Sparrow flies into Dien Bien Phu with a change of clothes, a golf club and his typewriter. Weeks later, as the Communists wrench loose France's hold on Indochina, Harry gets out with typewriter, golf club, a half-dead French nurse named Claudette and expectations for a Pulitzer. In Bangkok, Harry and Claudette marry, even though she's pregnant with the child of a Foreign Legionnaire, a former SS officer, who died in the destruction of Dien Bien Phu. But married life is a tough assignment for Harry, a hard-drinking Hemingwayesque hero, and while he's covering a golf tournament in Scotland, Claudette leaves for Paris to have and raise the baby by herself. News comes that she and the child have been kidnapped in Algiers; Harry flies there to discover the Legionnaire still alive and involved in the Arab fight for Algeria. Struggling to save Claudette and the child, Harry fights his way through layers of intrigue and politics, climaxing in a stunning chase and shoot-out. Shrake, a columnist, screenwriter and novelist (Limo, with Dan Jenkins), spins a powerfully atmospheric, fast-moving tale, making the most of the explosive events of the novel's time and place. (September 29)
Library Journal
Shrake's novel tells the story of ace journalist Harry Sparrow as he pursues 1) the story, 2) the Pulitzer, 3) a good game of golf, 4) the girl. In this case, the girl is French nurse Claudette Frontenac, whom Sparrow meets among the ``angels'' of Dien Bien Phu. Following their nightmare adventures at the doomed fortress and a hasty marriage in Thailand, the Sparrows find domestic tranquility elusive in London. They separate. Then Sparrow learns that Claudette and her baby have been kidnapped by Arab terrorists in Algeria and he rushes to their rescue. Fast-paced action with violence as exotic as its Asian and North African locales should attract male readers particularly. Recommended. William C. McCully, Park Ridge P.L., Ill.
