Books by Stephen Harrigan

Stephen Harrigan wasn’t born in Texas but the state is in his blood, all the way from his classic historical novel The Gates of the Alamo to the nuanced, melancholy tragedy of Remember Ben Clayton. In his latest, the great American novelist carries readers from the battlefields of World War I to the Texas frontier in pursuit of a story Kirkus called, “A heartening novel about art, war and the tug of family relationships.” The book follows the collision of Gil Gilheaney, an aging sculptor of some renown, and Lamar Clayton, a heartbroken West Texas rancher who seeks to memorialize his lost son through Gil’s medium.
