Blast From The Past Kinky Friedman Blast From The Past


I think that everyone has a set of novels they like to read on occasion that are just offbeat, a bit of a different flav, something that is going to shake up the usual mix to help keep everything fresh and provide added
perspective. The Mighty Kinkster is just the thing. Kinky Freidman , a former
Jewish Country music star, Texas Monthly columnist, and former candidate for the
governship of the great state of Texas 2006, has written a series of novels
that star, you guessed it, himself. Surprise!


The Kinkster has surrounded himself with a motley group of characters that call themselves “The Village Irregulars”. The setting for the novels has this group of lovable characters living in and around Greenwich
Village in New York City. Where else could they be? The plotlines are insane;
the dialogue is quick and funny. At times it’s just laugh out loud funny. I
have read almost all of them in the series; it has taken awhile. Reading them
back to back to back is not an easy thing. I would liken it to too much lemon
in the lemonade; you just kind of pucker up and cringe. Taken in small doses,
reading this on the beach or poolside, chuckling at the insanity of it all is
fun. Caution and warning, these novels
possess no social redeeming value, other than how strong friendship is. That is
all I can gather from them, but hey, what else can you expect from a novel that
has characters like Ratso, Rambam and Abbie Hoffman?


Looking for a departure, something that is going to make you laugh and tilt your head and say “No way, did I just read that”. This is that novel. Shake it up a bit, go backward to go forward, try to think like the
Kinkster for a little bit, you may look at things differently for a little bit
and laugh.
