Growing up gay in Houston, Texas does not sound like a recipe for an easy life, but it is a rich, meaningful, and endlessly interesting life, portrayed with sensitivity and verve in Lone Stars, a triumphant debut by Justin Deabler. --Matthew Sharpe, author of The Sleeping Father

Deabler's lovely first novel read as if preserved in amber--come from a gentler and more generous time. Enormously poignant, Lone Stars is written with great care, honoring the nuanced and shifting shapes of two men moving together through the great journey of being fully alive... It illuminates with its tenderness, it's quiet clarity, and finally its vision of hope. --Carole Maso, author of Ava

"Deabler's wide-ranging empathy and emotional intelligence mark him as an important new writer to watch." --Eliot Schrefer, National Book Award finalist, author of Endangered and Threatened

"At once epic and timely, Deabler's stunning multi-generational novel is a deep dive into the complexities of family and identity. It is a reminder of how frequently American history repeats, a complicated love song to Texas, and (I'll be honest) a tear-jerker. You won't be able to set this one down." --Diana Spechler, author of Who by Fire and Skinny

Lone Stars is a wonderfully humane and honest novel about a complicated modern American family. This perfectly paced story builds on secrets, betrayals and unconditional love toward a big-hearted ending that may leave you in tears. --Jim Lynch, author of Before the Wind
