“How did this city, one that has such an ineffable but palpable personality and spirit, become what it is—for better and worse? Joe Nick Patoski’s recent book, Austin to ATX: The Hippies, Pickers, Slackers and Geeks Who Transformed the Capital of Texas, answers the question both empirically and spiritually, tracing the many people and the many places they built along the way toward establishing this weird, idiosyncratic, flat little planet.”—NPR

“In Austin to ATX: The Hippies, Pickers, Slackers and Geeks Who Transformed the Capital of Texas, author Joe Nick Patoski digs into what made Austin the city we live in today. With everything included—from Amy’s Ice Creams to ZZ Top—Patoski covers its rich history with a candor and keen eye that keeps Austin weird without becoming maudlin.”—Austin Monthly
