This is a book of memories-the history of small-town Texas written in countertops and chrome stools. Susie Kelly Flatau has interviewed the owners of many wonderful old restaurants and bars and has woven a fascinating web of stories about these fast-disappearing places. Mark Dean's stunning black-and-white photos capture the warmth and character of these beloved landmarks and are sure to bring back fond recollections for anyone who has ever sat at a counter and ordered a hamburger and a chocolate soda or cold beer.

I purchased this book for my husband and will give it to him on our wedding anniversary. Both of us are native Texans and love to visit interesting places. I think this book will map out many wonderful places to go and experience life at a different pace. Thanks for giving us a wonderful book to guide our journies.
As the Author of Counter Culture Texas who worked in a fifty-fifty collaboration with the photographer - and under whose name the book is listed in the Library of Congress, I am concerned that Barnes and Noble bookstores lists it only under one name. To allow for more book sales - both names (author, Susie Kelly Flatau, photographer, Mark Dean, should be listed.) I represent a different demographic area for promotion and have had numerous concerns voiced by those who've attended an engagement, then after being directed them to B & N Bookstores they cannot find the work under my name. Cross referencing corrections would be most helpful. Thanks for your attention to this. Susie Kelly
