Gerald Duff and Blue Sabine Honored by the Philosophical Society of Texas

  The Philosophical Society of Texas, at its annual meeting in February, awarded Blue Sabine the prize for the best book of fiction about Texas published in 2011. Among the finalists were novels by James Lee Burke, Steve Harrigan, and other distinguished writers with Texas roots. Gerald Duff's book was cited as "a beautifully written, wondrously told novel in which one family's history merges with the larger currents of Texan and American history, creating a twisting, turning narrative that is as aesthetically satisfying as it is historically resonant."
