    David Rakoff's bestselling collection of autobiographical essays, Fraud, established him as one of today's funniest and most insightful writers. Now, in Don't Get Too Comfortable, Rakoff moves from the personal to the public, journeying into the land of unchecked plenty that is contemporary America. Rarely have greed, vanity, selfishness, and vapidity been so mercilessly and wittily skewered.

    Nell Huntworth says: "More wonderful David Rakoff"

    Overall

    Rakoff is a Neurotic Gay, Canadian exile and also a totally self adsorbed, navel gazing intellectual New York Jew. If you don't share all of these exotic personality determinants you will rapidly become annoyed rather than charmed by his seeming hopeless existential predicament. Long ago, Woody Allen did much, but not all, of this kind of complex shtick. He did much better and with much greater charm. Here, it starts to grate on your nerves long before it mericifully ends.

    Kinky Friedman, the original Texas Jew boy, guides readers through the sights, sounds, food, and sundry oddities of his favorite Texas city. Known for live music and food, Austin is also the home of Willie Nelson, Janis Joplin, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and a number of other music legends.

    "Half Kinkster, Half not"
    Overall

    A curious book from the Kinkster. In places it is pure genius, vintage Kinster rambling and in others it seems to have been written by some factlet freak in The Austin Tourist Bureau. Nevertheless, it almost makes me want to go back to Austin to investigate all the weird and interesting aspects of this city that I obviously totally missed in my earlier visit. My only memory of that visit was of being falsely and agressively acused of being a NYC boy by a totally drunk UT frat student because I was wearing an Austrian Loaden coat in the middle of the winter. So it goes...
