Title: Texas

A diplomat is captured in a country with some resemblance to an occupied Middle- Eastern nations, but the country is never named. He has been captured by supposed insurgents, is condemned to death and is waiting in a room for his execution. His thoughts and the interior landscapes he occupies comprise the narrative. This unnamed narrator has only the time left to him. Texas is a provocative story of death against the backdrop of ugly and uncompromising politics. It is also a mediation on empire, imperialism and American hegemony. The writing borrows heavily from philosophy and poetry. The vision unique with an ear for cadence. Texas is a challenging work, but one that should find a ready audience, especially in the United States.”
