...[actress] Vonetta McGee was known for her spare, economical gestures, which hid explosive emotions. Andy Tauer’s austerely beautiful Lonestar Memories has an impenetrable, pottery-shell exterior and luminous eyes. Dry and overheated, it’s secretive, holds its feelings close—you wipe the sweat from your brow, shake the dust off your worn leather boots; there’s copper-color incense, roan horses taking shelter in weathered barns. A slow-burning gingered bloom an hour into wearing, a widening smile only for those who deserve it.
