No Kin to Elvis

by Budd Harbis (Author), Melita Easters (Editor)

The art of Southern humor is the art of caricature applied to memorable, delightful characters, and until now, no one has done it as well in the last fifty years as William Price Fox in his Southern Fried stories. Now we have Budd Harbis.

Terry Kay, author of To Dance with the White Dog and other memorable novels

Had Walker Percy grown up on Faron Youngs tour bus, hed have been... Budd Harbis!

Marshall Chapman, legendary singer-songwriter and author of the book, Goodbye, Little Rock and Roller

Budd Harbis carries forward the tradition of Lewis Grizzard. Like Lewis, Budd has a love and an appreciation for small town Southern life. Lewis would have loved Budds stories.

Dedra Grizzard, wife of the late humorist and author, Lewis Grizzard

Note to Budd Harbis:

I have spent a good and enjoyable part of the first week of 2012 reading and rereading and laughing at your fictional work of real humor and tragedy with enough redemptive force at the end to change the world or a readers view of it.

Dr. James W. Clark, Jr., author and Professor Emeritus, English, North Carolina State University

Leave it to Budd Harbis to come up with a book that is both imaginative and historically based. Budd knows the South well, and this book reflects a deep understanding of a fascinating time and place: rural Georgia on the cusp of the Civil Rights era.

James Harris, playwright, Civil War Voices
