Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kinky Friedman is back, and with 'Scuse Me While I Whip This Out he gets it on with all manner of egos. In this collection of twisted takes on life, the Kinkster gives us funny, irreverent, and insightful looks at outsized personalities from people he's known, like Bill Clinton, George W., Willie Nelson, and Bob Dylan — not to mention Joseph Heller and Don Imus — to people he's known in spirit, such as Moses, Jesus, Jack Ruby, and Hank Williams. With his meditations on subjects ranging from sleeping at the White House, marriage, his pets, fishing in Borneo, country music, and cigars to the tribulations of possessing talent, Kinky doesn't deny us the "flashes of brilliance and laugh-out-loud observations" (Rocky Mountain News) that are present in all his other work.

Hilarious, irreverent, and passionately twisted, 'Scuse Me While I Whip This Out reads as if it were written by a slightly ill modern-day Mark Twain.

About the Author

Kinky Friedman is the author of Kinky Friedman's Guide to Texas Etiquette and the novel Kill Two Birds & Get Stoned as well as seventeen mysteries whose main character is Kinky Friedman. He lives with five dogs, three donkeys, one armadillo, a million hummingbirds, and a much-used Smith Corona typewriter on a ranch in the Texas Hill Country. With any luck, he'll be the next governor of the state of Texas.
