  Keeping Austin Weird: A Guide to the (Still) Odd Side of Town

Publication Date: Schiffer Publishing, 2016.

"Take a whimsical photographic tour of the people, places, and events in Austin that collectively make it one of the weirdest cities in America. City native Red Wassenich is tour guide to the odder side of town, which has grown enormously in size and reputation in recent years. Marvel at the Cathedral of Junk, a three-story, 60-ton behemoth made of flotsam and jetsam. Join the fun at Eeyore’s Birthday Bash, a day-long bacchanalia celebrating the beloved fictional character. Meet Dr. Dumpster, who lived in a tricked-out trash bin for over a year. Visit the Museum of the Weird in the city’s “Dirty Sixth” neighborhood. While locals fret endlessly over the forces of normalcy and consumerism that threaten its quirky existence, the town’s still-unconventional underbelly is revealed in this book. So whether you’re into art, food, politics, music, or sports with a flair for the strange, Austin has just the place for you." from the back cover.
