Review: Red Lobster, White Trash, & the Blue Lagoon: Joe Queenan's America

User Review  - Daniel Brixey - Goodreads

OnwE of my favourite books. I have always loved Joe Queenans writing. I don't agree with everything he says, however when he opened up with the line,'Cats is bad. So very, very bad.' I couldn't have agreed more. And I agreed wholeheartedly on his views on Billy Joel. Funny and sarcastic stuff. Read full review
