Reviews

"This teeny book by Austin writer Sarah Bird is a must for any proud Texas woman (and any Texas man proud to love a Texas woman.) In her trademark bitingly funny style, Bird talks about her journey from granola hippydom in New Mexico to the Aqua-Netted friendliness of Texas, and how she learned to love it. Great stories and quotes from greats such as the late Ann Richards and Lady Bird Johnson to everyday ladies getting their hair set in small towns."-- (05/04/2016)
"Bird brings her characteristic brand of unflappable humor to reflect on strong women--from the confident, colorfully named ladies of the Hyde Park Beauty Salon ("Eddie Faye, Peninah, Waynette, Permelia Lynn, Dicy") to the grace and grit of first ladies and Distinguished Alumnae Lady Bird Johnson and Laura Bush."--The Alcalde (05/01/2016)
"Now here's an old Second Wave feminist's unbiased, fair and balanced review of Sarah Bird's new book A Love Letter to Texas Women. It's a hoot! A laugh-out-loud 80-page personal history with heart, grit and a galaxy of stars."-- (05/07/2016)
