Synopsis : This book examines affiliations between Horton Foote's Texas connections and his literary art while assessing several major plays and the autobiographical writings of the distinguished American playwright and screenwriter. As a native of small-town Texas who began his pursuit of an acting career in the difficult days of the Great Depression, Foote was able to find himself as a playwright while struggling as an actor in New York City in the days preceding World War II. Writing stage plays, and then working in early television, Foote developed dramaturgic expertise that he applied to screenwriting, resulting in an Academy Award for his screenplay for the 1962 classic film To Kill a Mockingbird. Later, he won another Oscar for Tender Mercies (1983) as well as a Pulitzer Prize for his stage play The Young Man from Atlanta (1995). He continued to produce effective dramatic works until his death at ninety-two in 2009.

Review: "People who love Horton Foote's work will feel at home in these chapters. They are true to the voice, style, and themes of Horton's writing. But they are more than comfortable. They open new doors, arguing effectively for unrealized approaches, research, and discussions." - Prof. Gerald C. Wood Carson-Newman College"
