Saving the History of Texas Authors & Their Books

Sironia, Texas

Madison Cooper, Jr.

Adventures with a Texas NaturalistWaco novelist Madison Cooper made news in 1952 when Time magazine declared his 1.1 million word Sironia, TX to be "the longest novel by an American." The novel was a NY Times best seller for 11 weeks. At the time the novel was scandalous and banned in some places. It talks about small town central TX life in the early 1900s. Cooper modeled some of his characters after real local people. This book has been well loved by countless readers over the years. This is a real gem-signed by the author on volume 1.
