MEDIA REVIEWS
"There's no question that in the pages of "Straight from the Fridge, Dad", everyday speech is put through some hilarious and convoluted permutations. But you don't have to take that on faith. Just cop a squat, cast your lamps on the book's leaves and dig its mellow kicks." --"Chicago Tribune" "If you are the kind of hep cat who harbors a burning urge to gas the slobs, then the righteous Max is the man. He shoots the works to fascinating and often hilarious effect." --Esquire "There's no question that in the pages of Straight from the Fridge, Dad, everyday speech is put through some hilarious and convoluted permutations. But you don't have to take that on faith.
