Overview of 'Scuse Me while I Whip This Out: Reflections on Country Singers, Presidents, and Other Troublemakers

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.

Synopsis of 'Scuse Me while I Whip This Out: Reflections on Country Singers, Presidents, and Other Troublemakers

A collection of twisted takes on what it is to be and live in the world of Kinky.

'Scuse Me While I Whip This Out is a collection of twisted takes on life by Kinky Friedman. As always, the Kinkster's work is witty, wise and wonderful, and reads as if it was written by a slightly ill, modern-day Mark Twain. These pieces taken in their totality represent a wide-ranging new direction for Friedman, building on his already well-established fan base as a mystery writer and musician. In 'Scuse Me While I Whip This Out Kinky will deal with such subjects as marriage, his pets, hanging out with Joe Heller, Bob Dylan, sleeping at the White House, the Peace Corps, country music, travelling, Americana, cigars, Don Imus, and talent. This mixture may well be the funniest as well as the best non-fiction work he has ever done. Many of the pieces are totally new and have never been published anywhere before. Others have appreared in his vastly successful column in the award-winning Texas Monthly magazine. As hilarious and irreverent as David Sedaris, as dark and passionately twisted as George Carlin- and illustrated by the hermetic genius John Callahan-'Scuse Me While I Whip This Out is destined to be one of the most side-splitting, thought-provoking books on the market today.
