What a great read. I love this kind of book and hope a sequel is in the making.
I received this book for Christmas. I'm a native Texan / History buff / fan of adventure. My wife is from East Texas and we live in Austin. This was a treat to read.
The author takes us on a "stream of conciousnes" based trip through his amazing life. The writing style and descriptions jumping from memory to memory had me comparing the style to Hunter S. Thompson meets Kinky Friedman!

So I finished the book a few nights ago and all I can say is that I'm disappointed. Disappointed it ended!!!! Love the book. Truly. I have this thing when I find a book I really like, I savour it and look forward to reading it each night before I go to sleep. This was that book!! Bravo.

This review is from: The Unbelievable True Tales of a Tall Texan (Paperback)

With the unlikely parental merger of a Mafia hit man and a Bible-thumping Southern Baptist, Stapleton's life was destined to be extraordinary right out of the gate, er, womb. He did grow tall and he tells tall tales, slice-of-life, full of grit and guts, humor mixed with a patch or two of pathos, but tales that will keep you turning page after page, and when you've read the last one, you'll want more.

The Unbelievable True Tales of a Tall Texan is nothing like I've read before. The stories are funny- being run over by a driverless go-cart, they're sad- learning about life and being bitten by a rabid dog. I really like the way each begins chapter with the news headlines for that year. Each chapter is a year in the life of Stapleton from 1968-1992. This book is a page turner.
