Kinky Friedman: God Bless John Wayne (Faber and Faber)

Phil Sutcliffe, Q, 1999

Kinky Friedman is full of himself. He always was in his ’70s singing days with provocateur country & western outfit The Texas Jewboys. And now he’s fronting his own crime novels. For where Conan Doyle had his Sherlock Holmes and Raymond Chandler his Philip Marlowe, Kinky Friedman has his, well, Kinky Friedman.
