Kevin Kling's first book, The Dog Says How, brought readers into his wonderful world of the skewed and significant mundane. Kling does it again in Kevin Kling's Holiday Inn, a romp through a yearful of holidays and a lifetime of gathering material.
A wiener dog with an amazing capacity for destruction impresses the whole family and contributes to their collection of favorite disastrous Christmas stories. A Choctaw and a nun go trick-or-treating on Halloween. A boy makes a frightening decision every year when he chooses which classmate gets the "Be Mine" Valentine. Kevin takes his mom to a Fourth of July demolition derby–and then he takes an epic trip around the bases at a ball game on Memorial Day.
From tomfoolery with his brother in the backseat of their dad's car through his carefully considered instructions for ice fishing, Kling never loses the spirit of his story or holds back on its humor.

I have had the distinct privilege to hear Kevin tell his stories and to direct his plays. When he stated he had published his first book THE DOG SAYS HOW, I immediately purchased it. HOLIDAY INN is even better. His voice is original, touching, honest, thoughtful and delightfully human. I remember my mother telling me that while tears felt good, the only way to move through life is with a sense of humor. What is better is that I found myself and my family in his stories. Kevin is a laugh-outloud guide in finding humor in what it means to be human.
