About the Author:

STEPHEN HARRIGAN is the author of nine books of fiction and nonfiction, including the award-winning novels The Gates of the Alamo and Remember Ben Clayton and the critically acclaimed essay collection The Eye of the Mammoth. He lives in Austin, Texas, where he is a writer-at-large for Texas Monthly and a faculty fellow at the University of Texas’s Michener Center for Writers.

Review:

"A resonant first novel. Beneath its genial surface, allusive undercurrents tug." (New York Times Book Review)

"The sureness and poise of this first novel are as remarkable as the sharpness, oddity, and clarity of its feelings . . . Aransas is an elegant debut." (Newsweek)

"Harrigan’s eye for locale and its effect is superb." (Washington Post Book World)

"Harrigan . . . has a sharp eye for observing man, beast, seashore, and town in a vividly drawn setting." (Publishers Weekly)

"An ardent and elegant book, beautiful in its language, mature in its perceptions, noble in its sentiments." (San Francisco Chronicle)

"A sensitive, enormously evocative first novel in a spare but warm prose style that immerses us in atmosphere as insistently as it does the plot . . . Harrigan is a splendid novelist." (Houston Post)

"Aransas has several surprises, including dramatic suspense, counterculture revisionism, and what must be considered dolphin revisionism. More, Harrigan has written an acute American regional novel." (Village Voice)
