Description - Blast from the Past by Kinky Friedman
The irrepressible Kinkster follows his best-selling novel Roadkill with a fresh, fabulous prequel that answers the burning question, 'Where the hell did those weird characters come from anyway?' Those addicted to this true original have a special treat in store in Blast from the Past. The author has searched his failing memory and come up with a yarn about his early days in New York - how Kinky Friedman, the down-and-out, sleazeball country-music performer, became Kinky Friedman, the down-and-out, sleazeball ace detective. It explains where those Village Irregulars - Ratso, Rambam and McGovern - came from, and why. And it asks the question, was Stephanie Dupont ever really a little girl, a five-year-old nymphet in patent leather spikes? The answers to his and myriad other questions are to be found in Blast from the Past, a tale of murder, mayhem, madness, lust, considerable navel-gazing, and exceptional fun.

Author Biography - Kinky Friedman
Kinky Friedman - commonly known to his many fans as 'The Kinkster' - first found fame as the lead singer of the country-and-western band 'The Texas Jewboys'. He is also the author of a series of highly acclaimed detective stories, featuring himself as the wise-cracking, cigar-smoking, cat-loving sleuth. He populates his novels with many of his friends and associates, portraying them (to their great delight) as villains, cheats and con-men. In the words of the great Willie Nelson, he is the 'best whodunnit writer to come along since Dashiel Whats-his-name'. Kinky Friedman lives in a trailer in the South Texas Hills with two dogs, two cats and Dilly, his pet armadillo.
