Product Description

Review

"The Washington Post Book World" Nothing is sacred in a Kinky Friedman book....Therein lies his charm. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Kinky Friedman - commonly known to his many fans as 'The Kinkster' - first found fame as the lead singer of the country-and-western band 'The Texas Jewboys'. He is also the author of a series of highly acclaimed detective stories, featuring himself as the wise-cracking, cigar-smoking, cat-loving sleuth. He populates his novels with many of his friends and associates, portraying them (to their great delight) as villains, cheats and con-men. In the words of the great Willie Nelson, he is the 'best whodunnit writer to come along since Dashiel Whats-his-name'. Kinky Friedman lives in a trailer in the South Texas Hills with two dogs, two cats and Dilly, his pet armadillo. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This book gives the reader an introduction to Kinky and his friends. It is a flashback, covering his first forays into private investigation and his arrival at the Vandam Street loft. Not the best of his books, it tries to introduce the Greenwich Village Irregulars all at once in too much of a rush. If you want to know the origins of the characters who inhabit his novels, it is useful, but not essential. Old hippies should appreciate Abbie Hoffman's appearance as a peripheral character on the run from 'The Man'.
