Best Author / Poet

Kinky Friedman

There’s something about being the wacky outsider living on the fringes with which Austin can identify. Friedman’s alter ego, a super-sleuthing New York detective, serves as the main character for a series of mystery novels penned by the "next governor of Texas." With one-liners that’ll have you bursting into laughter at the bus stop and sweet Southern charm to boot, the Kinkster's novels have earned him the prestige of being named by our readers: Austin’s best author/poet.
