To be honest I hadn't picked up this book to actually read it but because the author sounded familiar and I thought it would make a nice release. And I don't really know why I decided to try it anyway when I was reorganizing my BX bookshelf (the actual one, not my virtual bookshelf LOL). Maybe the quote 'The toughest, hippest, funniest mystery in years'? But I am not really a believer of blurb texts ;) Anyway, I still didn't expect much of it.

And I quite LIKED it! :)) Not especially as a mystery maybe, but as an easy, funny and sympathetic read. It made me snigger several times (I am not much of a comic novel reader) and I really REALLY liked the way Kinky -or The Kinkster- talks about his cat.

When I got home it was after midnight. The cat wasn't too happy about how long I'd been gone and neither was I. When you have a cat, you assume certain responsibilities that, in a spiritual sense, may transcend those of a marital or business relationship. We both felt a little let down. pg. 62

Friedman also references a lot to musicians and writers. Like 'you Sam Cooked him'. Half of it I probably didn't get ;) But it is funny anyway.

According to the author some people think this debut from 1986 is his best book. Kinky Friedman likes to refer to those people as 'insects trapped in amber'. Well, because of this I am not sure whether I will ever read any books of him again. Now if I could get someone other than the cat to believe me.

You might never know ;)

The cat yawned and stretched and I yawned and stretched and we both looked at each other. Sometimes I thought there wasn't a man, woman or child on this planet that I loved as much as that cat. What the cat thought was something else of course. I rarely meddled in the cat's personal affairs and she rarely meddled in mine. Neither of us was foolish enough to attribute human emotions to our pets. pg. 4-5
