In Fildelphia Story, Graham remembers his Ivy League professorial stint in a city the small-town Texan who rented him a moving van looked up under F. In Doing England the Lone Star Yankee courts Oxford University and returns with a veddy British education.

In The Ground Sense Necessary a native son journeys inward to explore the dry ceremonies of frontier Protestantism and to recount movingly his fathers funeral in Collin County. With his wide-ranging knowledge of classic regional works, Graham unerringly traces the style and substance of local literary giants and offers a sometimes irreverent but always entertaining look at the Texas triumvirate of Dobie, Webb and Bedichek. Other essays look at such Texas greats as Katherine Anne Porter, George Sessions Perry, and John Graves.
