Stephen Harrigan

Stephen Harrigan is a novelist, journalist, historian, and screenwriter. His books include The Gates of the Alamo (Penguin Press 2000) and the 2019 history Big Wonderful Thing: A History of Texas (University of Texas Press). This volume is “brimming with sass, intelligence, trenchant analysis, literary acumen, and juicy details . . . It is popular history at its best.” Another reviewer wrote, “It’s hard to think of another writer with as much Lone Star credibility as Stephen Harrigan. . . . Harrigan, essentially, is to Texas literature what Willie Nelson is to Texas music.”
