If Kinky Friedman does to literature what he has done to music, this nation is in serious trouble. Dave Barry, humorist, author, and Pulitzer Prize winner

If Kinky Friedman does to literature what he has done to music, this nation is in serious trouble. Dave Barry, humorist, author, and Pulitzer Prize winner. Armadillos & Old Lace is a real beauty mark of sinful excess; I loved it. The only thing I don't like about Mr. Friedman is that he ain't the governor of Texas. Yet. -James Crumley, author of The Last Good Kiss.

A Martian was standing in the trailer at my bedside. Each of its eyes was tunneling blinding silver beams of light into my brain. The effect was paralyzing, not to say a bit unnerving. The effect was paralyzing, not to say a bit unnerving ted to be picked up by a UFO, but not before breakfast. Kinky, said the Martian. I sat up in bed and realized that the Martian was Marilyn and the tunnels of light were the sun’s rays reflecting off her thick glasses. On her head, I now observed, was a rather singular silver porpoiseshaped cap that read I SAW SEA WORLD.

Armadillos and Old Lace. Kinky Friedman is living proof that you can be a Texan, a New Yorker, a Jewish country-and-western singer, and an amateur detective all at the same time.

Old Testaments & New Revelations. Kinky Friedman And The Texas Jewboys. Elvis Jesus and Coca-Cola, God Bless John Wayne, Blast From The Past, Armadillos and Old Lace and two nonfiction books, Drinker With A Writing Problem and Heroes of A Texas Childhood were released in 2011. Friedman also announced (via Jim Bessman's column at examiner. com) the upcoming release of all Vandam Press titles as unabridged audio books "read by the author".

Kinky Friedman-both the author and his detective protagonist of the same name-goes home to Texas. When Kinky heads for the homestead to clear his brain, he finds himself knee-deep in murder-little old ladies are dropping dead at an alarming rate. Before this case ends, Kinky will meet up with a rose-growing survivalist, a swarm of angry bees, a swarm of eight-year-old buckaroos at his father's ranch and summer camp, and, if he's not careful, he may just meet up with his own ultimate end.

“If Kinky Friedman does to literature what he has done to music, this nation is in serious trouble.”—Dave Barry, humorist, author, and Pulitzer Prize winnerKinky Friedman is living proof that you can be a Texan, a New Yorker, a Jewish country-and-western singer, and an amateur detective all at the same time. But when New York City gets a little too full of murder and mayhem to suit him, Kinky heads for the fresh air of the Lone Star State—filtered, of course, through his ever-present cigar. But something is rotten in the state of Texas, too, and Kerrville's justice of the peace asks the Kinkster for his help. Four old ladies have died in the past few months, and though there's no apparent link, Judge Pat Knox is sure there's a connection. Before this case ends, Kinky will meet up with a rose-growing survivalist, a swarm of angry bees, a swarm of eight-year-old buckaroos at his father's ranch and summer camp, and, if he's not careful, he may just meet up with his own ultimate end.Armadillos & Old Lace is a real beauty mark of sinful excess; I loved it.

Banal
This is probably the 5th Kinky Friedman novel I have read, but since they have been in no particular order perhaps another one took us to the Texas Hill Country and I wasn't aware of it. For me, it was a breakaway, venue-wise and having been to all of the towns and places he describes made it especially fun. I also detect a gentler, perhaps even spiritual undertone in this novel that I have not noticed in the others I enjoyed previously. Naturally, it was a guffaw a minute as the story unfolds. It contains enough plot points to keep one turning the page. And as much as I hate cigar smoke and almost gag thinking of how discolored both his and his character's teeth must be, I grieved when the story drew to a close.

All of Kinky Friedman's tales are hilarious, down to earth, thrilling..A joy to read!

Very funny and tongue in cheek. It is my favorite Kinky Friedman book so far. After reading several of his paper back mysteries, this one is still my favorite, although they do tend to become formulaic. It is witty, a little dirty, with a twist ending. It is a good "dime store novel." Well worth the read.

Some of Kinky's books are much like one another, but in this one his main character (is it really him?), travels to Texas. This new setting lets this adventure stand out from the others. It is as well-written as we've come to expect, with everything coming together at the end in an unpredictable conclusion that, in retrospect, was being carefully set up throughout the novel.

Having been at Echo Hill Ranch for, this book was more vivid to me than those set on Vandam St.
Always good for a chuckle and provoking thoughts, Kinky's books are far more than just mysteries.
Fantastic book, loved every page, i am a massive Fan of all Kinky's books and this one was amazing.
Descriptions of the Echo Ranch made me want to move there, it sounds idyllic and beautiful.
