Tex Gresham’s Heck, Texas, could only have been borne out of insanity. I imagine the author locked away, with only his thoughts to keep him company. In that kind of environment, your mind tends to wander and veer into the darkest places. Heck, Texas has a mixture of artistic forms, such as poetry, prose, letters, drawings, photography, and screenplays. Gresham’s unique style makes for a remarkable book.
Some moments will make you laugh out loud, and others will stop you in your tracks. The ending comes as a slight surprise, and amongst all the humour and streams of consciousness, reminds you of what Gresham’s intentions always were.
