About the Contributor

In this collection, the editors of Texas Monthly take stock of their multifaceted, larger-than-life state, including the people, customs, land, culture, and cuisine that have collided and comingled here. Featuring essays, reportage, recipes, and recommendations from the magazine’s legendary roster of contributors, and accompanied by original drawings, Being Texan explores the landscapes that are home to more than 29 million people; the joys and idiosyncrasies of Texan life; underappreciated episodes of Texas history; and distinctive strains of Texan arts and culture. Texas Monthly is one of the most respected publications in the nation and has won fourteen National Magazine Awards for its editorial excellence and outstanding design. Since 1973, the magazine has chronicled life in contemporary Texas, publishing long-form literary storytelling on the state’s most interesting characters and trends, along with reporting and analysis on vital issues such as politics, the environment, business, and education.
