7314548._UY200_

Kinky Friedman is enjoying life – drinking a ton, doing some drugs, couch surfing and generally enjoying sleazy New York when suddenly, it seems like someone is out to get him. And get him dead. This is the book that introduces Friedman fans to his world and has him meeting up with all variety of folks that become his world for future books.

It’s fun, it’s lighthearted, it’s not all that politically correct, but that’s easy enough to forgive. It makes you want to live in the sleazy New York of yesteryear, with all of the filth and violence and everything.
