Overview

Elvis Jesus & Coca is "entertainment of the highest order" and a "shockingly clever murder mystery".

Tom Baker is dead under suspicious circumstances, and his film about bizarre Elvis impersonators is missing. And, so is "Uptown" Judy, who leaves behind only a trail of blood and a pair of cowboy boots.

Assisted by the Village Irregulars - Ratso, real-life P.I. Steve Rambam, Mike McGovern, Pete Myers, Chinga, Mick Brennan - and by "Downtown" Judy, Uptown's sudden stand-in, Kinky struggles to unravel two disappearances, multiple murders and his own murky past.

Vandam Press is proud to be able to make this remarkable novel available to Kinky’s old friends and to those readers worldwide who are discovering Kinky Friedman for the first time.

"This book, like the author, is funny, clear-eyed, sometimes touching, and very often dead on the money. For a guy who isn't me, the Kinkster can really write." (Robert B. Parker)

"Elvis Jesus & Coca-Cola is this generation's Catcher In The Rye. And it doesn't make you want to shoot a Beatle." (Don Imus)

"Elvis Jesus & Coca-Cola is Kinky Friedman at his blue-bellied best." (Molly Ivins)

"The world's funniest, bawdiest and most politically incorrect music singer turned mystery writer." (New York Times Book Review)

"Kinky's the best whodunit writer to come along since Dashiell What's-His-Name." (Willie Nelson)

"A true Texas legend." ( former President George W. Bush)

"Dear Kinky, I have now read all of your books. More, please. I really need the laughs." (former) President Bill Clinton

"A surefire cure for the blues." New York Times

About "Elvis Jesus & Coca-Cola", from the new Author's Introduction: "... In my life Elvis Jesus and Coca-Cola has been a prophetic book. By that I mean it has been a harbinger of conflicted love, of love being never meant to be, of love being meant to be forever. The mystery and confusion of the identities of Uptown Judy and Downtown Judy reflect art imitating life and myself imitating a man capable of a normal relationship… This book was written before DNA or cell phones but it was not written before good and evil. There is an edgy, amoral countenance in the novel ...".

    Humor as sharp as Mario Batalis cleaver. By Provictus

    Kinkys style fits his name. Eclectic, dry, rollercoaster laughs. He and his wacky Irregulars would be great fun to hang with. The verbal exchange is laser. The wisdom sublime. I think its interesting to note that there are no more books like this.
