For their new Austin Chamber Music Center collaboration, the pianist and composer crank up the reverb but good
Arts Story  January 14, 2016, by Robert Faires
"...And just beyond the piano, framed by familiar cascades of long, brown hair is another grin, this more Cheshire Cat-like, that signals satisfaction with both the music and its performer's response. That would belong to Graham Reynolds, one of the live music capital's busiest musicmakers (Golden Hornet Project co-founder; frequent composer of scores for Richard Linklater films, plays for the Rude Mechs, and dances for Forklift Danceworks and Ballet Austin; and, as of this week, recipient of $95,000 in support from Creative Capital [$50,000 to develop his chamber opera Pancho Villa From a Safe Distance and $45,000 for career development])..."

Nothing, absolutely nothing, about Texas literature or film escapes him..."

Giant Country
Books Story  August 7, 1998
"...Don Graham's book of essays, Giant Country: Essays on Texas (TCU Press, $22.50 hard) is as welcome as a couple thousand extra BTU's and a tray of margaritas in the midst of the blast-furnace heat of the most miserable summer in memory. With his finely tuned sense of what it means to be Texan inside and out, this spiky blend of ironic humor and observation is a cool tonic for smart Texans everywhere...."

starstarstar
Film Review  September 13, 2002, by Sarah Hepola
"...Directed by Jesse Peretz and shot on digital video, The Chateau follows the two brothers as their unexpected boon proves increasingly calamitous: The chateau is falling apart and debt-ridden, the staff is eccentric and demanding, and (don't forget) things run a wee different in the south of France, you silly American boys. By dumping the odd couple in this foreign land, the film pokes fun at their American ridiculousness: Graham (Rudd) fancies himself an intellectual, but he blathers on about The Celestine Prophecy and hilariously mangles his French (trying to convey his approval of dinner, Graham announces to the staff, "I love you potato"); Rex (Malco) sees himself as a player-entrepreneur, a deal-maker and a heartbreaker, but his attempts at smoothtalking the townspeople usually result in scorn or ridicule..."

starstar
Film Review  July 22, 1994, by Marc Savlov
"...After the boy declares himself a “free agent” (much to the surprise of his previously inattentive parents, played by Seinfeld's Alexander and Louis-Dreyfus), he teams up with pal Winchell (Mathew McCurley) and ambulance-chaser (literally) Lovitz to seek out a new homestead. The first half of Reiner's film shows us the various family situations North encounters, from Dan Aykroyd and Reba McEntire as a pair of rich Texans to Graham Greene and Kathy Bates as an Alaskan Inuit family (along with Abe Vigoda as grandpa, who ends up set adrift on an ice flow to await death, “before he starts embarrassing himself”)..."

Katherine Anne Porter would have turned 101 on May 15; details in Postscripts.
Books Column  May 11, 2001, by Clay Smith
"...… I have no hidden marriages. They just sort of escape my mind." And when McCall's wanted to know why Porter hadn't stayed married, she said, "Do you know I attract insane people?" That's one of the many treasures in From Texas to the World and Back: Essays on the Journeys of Katherine Anne Porter (TCU Press, $26.50) -- specifically, it's from SWT creative writing grad Larry Herold's essay "Trapped by the Great White Searchlight: Katherine Anne Porter and Marital Bliss." Porter would have turned 101 on Tuesday, May 15, and to celebrate, half a dozen contributors to the book -- Don Graham, Mark Busby, and Dick Holland, among others -- will be at a booksigning and party at the Katherine Anne Porter Literary Center in Kyle at 7pm on May 15...."

Film Review  August 10, 2001, by Marrit Ingman
"...For his part, Ratner seems unable to commit to film an image that doesn't contain some element of mismatched buddy hijinks (from last year's holiday heartwarmer The Family Man to his 1997 debut, Money Talks, and last year's Ratner-produced Double Take). The director's next project is reportedly an adaptation of the Thomas Harris novel Red Dragon (elliptically filmed by Michael Mann as Manhunter in 1986); perhaps his Hannibal Lecter will be a streetwise motormouth and his Special Agent Will Graham will be a pencil-necked geek who cracks the case by getting jiggy for a change..."

The spirit lead me to Don Graham's "Oil Field Girls," a little three-page marvel of personality depiction that tells the story of a security guard at UT's Harry Ransom Center who is supposed to protect the "Gunterberg Bible": "They kept it in a big glass case where couldn't nobody touch it..."

Salon of the West
They may not notice us every time we go to Barton Springs -- after all, they are thinking, passionate men, deep in conversation. But we sure notice them: the men at Philosophers' Rock. Who are they? And why does Austin owe them such a debt of gratitude?
Books Story  July 4, 2003, by Steve Moore

Books Story  December 31, 1998, by Dick Holland
"...University of Texas professor Don Graham, in his piece, transferred the old American lit dichotomy of Paleface/Redskin (Henry James vs. Mark Twain) to Texas, and characterized literary Texas imports as "fern bar writers." This appeared to raise some hackles at the University of Houston's Creative Writing program, thus demonstrating that Yankee writers can be as thin-skinned as our local products..."
