Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dear Kinky: I have now read all your books. More please. I really need the laughs.” Bill Clinton
“Kinky’s writing cannot and should not be compared to that of any other writer or of any other genre. He is his own genre…He is a wordsmith of the first order.” New York Times Book Review
“This quirky tour of Austin, Texas, delivers the whole enchilada…Whether or not a trip to Austin is in your future, this slim book paints a vivid picture of a city that’s as appealingly offbeat as Friedman himself.” Publishers Weekly
