Read full description of the books Elvis, Jesus, and Coca-Cola:

I first heard of Kinky Friedman as a musician when I was living in Texas for part of High School. I didn’t know until much later that he wrote detective novels, and when I saw one on sale in the bargain bin, I decided to give it a try. Highly irreverent, these books are not for those easily offended. They are whimsical and funny, with mystery plots that keep you fully entertained. These books haven’t shaken the foundations of the Western Canon with their profundity, but they never aspired to do so in the first place and there’s more social criticism in his books than in most pop culture manifestations. They’re fun and they’re perfectly content with that. Perfect Summer reading.

Read information about the author

Ebook Elvis, Jesus, and Coca-Cola read Online! Richard S. "Kinky" Friedman is an American singer, songwriter, novelist, humorist, politician and former columnist for Texas Monthly who styles himself in the mold of popular American satirists Will Rogers and Mark Twain. He was one of two independent candidates in the 2006 election for the office of Governor of Texas. Receiving 12.6% of the vote, Friedman placed fourth in the six-person race.

Friedman was born in Chicago to Jewish parents, Dr. S. Thomas Friedman and his wife Minnie (Samet) Friedman. The family moved to a ranch in central Texas a few years later. Friedman had an early interest in both music and chess, and was chosen at age 7 as one of 50 local players to challenge U.S. grandmaster Samuel Reshevsky to simultaneous matches in Houston. Reshevsky won all 50 matches, but Friedman was by far the youngest competitor.

Friedman graduated from Austin High School in Austin, Texas in 1962 and earned a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Texas at Austin in 1966, majoring in Psychology. He took part in the Plan II Honors program and was a member of the Tau Delta Phi fraternity. During his freshman year, Chinga Chavin gave Friedman the nickname "Kinky" because of his curly hair.

Friedman served two years in the United States Peace Corps, teaching on Borneo in Malaysia with John Gross. During his service in the Peace Corps, he met future Texas Jewboy road manager Dylan Ferrero, with whom he still works today. Friedman lives at Echo Hill Ranch, his family's summer camp near Kerrville, Texas. He founded Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch, also located near Kerrville, whose mission is to care for stray, abused and aging animals; more than 1,000 dogs have been saved from animal euthanasia.
