“Flamingo Funeral is a hilarious story about a Southern con man’s funeral.” Phil Levin, Author of Gulf Coast Writer’s Association, President, Author of ‘Ndovu the Elephant an African Tale
"Never have I read something that so wholly embraces the idiosyncrasies of modern Southern gothic. From an absurd situation to a cast of incredibly and endearingly flawed characters -- the main one deceased -- Flamingo Funeral elevates the American redneck to new heights. Kennedy's talent for character, plot and humor shines through on every page. I can't wait to read more." Stephanie Lawton, Author of Want.
