Elizabeth Crook’s The Which Way Tree
Chasing revenge on the Texas frontier in this remarkable new novel from the author of Monday, Monday
Arts Story  March 8, 2018, by Robert Faires
"...That's one way Elizabeth Crook grips you in her latest novel: pitting vulnerable humans against a bloodthirsty beast of almost supernatural size, power, and intelligence, a creature so vicious and unstoppable that it's become legend. Crook's mountain lion – "panther" in the parlance of the book's Civil War-era Texas setting – may not have the size of Moby-Dick, but it casts as long a shadow as the White Whale, with settlers from the Hill Country to the Rio Grande sharing tales of the dreaded Demonio de Dos Dedos – the Demon of Two Toes..."

Seen / Soon: Feb. 2
Hearing a stately Passion from Arvo Pärt sung by Ensemble VIII and reading a Texas take on Moby Dick from Austin author Elizabeth Crook
Arts Column  February 1, 2018
"...The Which Way Tree is the latest from Austin author Elizabeth Crook, who manages in it the striking feat of not only capturing the voice of a 19th century youth as honestly and compellingly as Mark Twain did but also having her Texas Huck recount a Moby Dick-like pursuit across Texas in which the White Whale is a malevolent mountain lion and its Ahab is a girl it mauled while killing her mother. Crook kicks off the release of the novel Wed., Feb..."

The Night Journal
Though the structure of Elizabeth Crook's The Night Journal could be labeled with lit-crit buzzwords like 'mise en abyme' and metafiction, the best descriptor available for it is the slightly awkward 'story-within-a-story'

Far Away, From Home
Local authors' summer lit-aways to distant places
Arts Story  May 15, 2014
"...All five authors have ties to Austin, and yet their books carry us to Okinawa, small-town Appalachia, the future of technology, and even Austin in the days before the Armadillo and MoPac. (This last, Elizabeth Crook's Monday, Monday, has just been selected for the Mayor's Book Club.) So sit down and let someone from home send you someplace far from it..."

The Gates of the Alamo Reviewed
Mark Busby reviews Stephen Harrigan's The Gates of the Alamo.
Books Story  March 24, 2000, by Mark Busby
"...These interpretations of history will spark discussions and maybe fistfights and hair-pulling among believers on different sides, but The Gates of the Alamo will be remembered for its interpretation of history and perhaps more for its memorable fictional characters, vivid descriptions, and effective narrative. While Harrigan worked on the novel for over eight years, he consulted two other novelists who have written about Texas history, Elizabeth Crook (Promised Lands and The Raven's Bride) and Jeff Long (Empire of Bones), discussing the craft of writing a historical novel..."

Why I Read ...
Books Column  January 7, 1999, by Clay Smith
"...Historical novelist Elizabeth Crook: You know, it's weird but reading for pleasure is so difficult for me because I start feeling like I should be getting something out of it, so I either read something that I feel is going to inform me of my time period or something where the writing is so exceptional that I feel like through osmosis I'm somehow influenced. The one I actually enjoyed the most, though it's a little embarrassing to say so, is Villette, which is a novel by Charlotte Brontë and so it's one of those old-fashioned romances...."

Hamrick recalls that "the first year we did it I was managing the store at Central Park [Bookstop] and I was talking to authors who were in the store a lot, Steve Harrigan and Elizabeth [Crook] and Larry, and we decided to attempt to do a celebration honoring Austin writers..."
