Review

Amy White s Wicked Bitch is a white-knuckle, runaway ride on a motorcycle on fire; a white trash manifesto that hits like a crowbar to the brainpan and goes down with all the subtlety of a straight shot of whiskey. Dripping with pickup truck sex and sung to the tune of red, white and blue rock n roll with a southern twang, Wicked Bitch is an American love story told in a smoky roadhouse; the true story of a biker woman who will not rest until she spits in the devil s eye. Dave Nichols Editor Easyriders & V-Twin Magazine Paisano Publications, LLC --Wicked Bitch, back cover comments

Review at Ironworks Garage, IWBlogger A New Book By Amy White Amy Irene White is the author of the new book Wicked Bitch. This book takes a look back at her life which would make up a whole album of great Country Western songs. It s the story of a girl with big dreams growing up in the South and pulling herself up by the bootstraps to conquer all sorts of major obstacles. Through the trials and tribulations she became a motorcycle rider, a freelance magazine writer and now a book author. Amy will be appearing May 25th at the Hogs and Heifers Saloon, 859 Washington Street, New York City at the Memorial Day Bar B-Que. Amy and fellow author Arthur Veno, Biker Chicks will be making appearances together in the New York area from May 28 - June 8 so look for them if you re going to be in the city. WICKED BITCH REVIEW IN WOMEN RIDERS NOW Way To Go Girl! WOMEN RIDERS DOING GREAT THINGS! Against The Odds Amy White has just put out an autobiography, entitled Wicked Bitch. Wicked Bitch chronicles what it's like to grow up in Arkansas and become a freelance biker journalist for Easyriders, In The Wind, Biker, and V-twin magazines. Amy is 90 percent deaf and takes chemotherapy for life threatening lupus. This August she will be riding her 16-year-old Harley-Davidson to Sturgis, South Dakota. Amy wants to show everyone that she is the person in her book, the woman who picks herself up and gets back on that bike, no matter what life throws at her. Safe travels. Amy, see you at Sturgis! --Ironworks Garage, IWBlogger; WRN, Women Riders Now, Motorcycling News and Reviews

Wicked Bitch screams through the backdrop of the real south just the way the moonshiners and the booze runners did in their hot rod Fords a generation ago--hammer down and to hell with anything that gets in her way! Bill Hayes, author of The Original Wild Ones and American Biker National Press & Publicity Officer Boozefighters MC --Bill Hayes

Amy gives readers a look inside small town southern life in a way I've never seen before. She has an amazing way of describing people, places and situations that make you feel like you are right there with her. This is not a book for the faint hearted. It is a true story of a tough woman with the soul of an angel. You will laugh, you will sing and you will cry. Anyone who has ever owned or dreamed of riding a motorcycle will appreaciate this book. Ladies you will want to stand up and cheer and then break down and cry. Wonderful read and highly recommended!!

Format: Paperback
Here is finally a real book written from a biker broad's perspective that both women and men can understand and appreciate. Wicked Bitch easily carries you down the twisty, tree shrouded roads of rural Arkansas where at each stop in the author's narrative we meet her colorful friends, lovers, enemies, and family - some loathsome, some gentle and kind, and others in between. The sad and funny stories of Amy Irene White's life - from her daily battle with Lupus, her love affairs, along with wrenching on cars and bikes and punching out a deserving drunk or two - all flow from the pages with the unrestrained familiarity you only find when perched on a bar stool sharing an afternoon of drinks with that newly discovered best friend. A very interesting and intelligent best friend. This lady ain't no slouch. She can read four languages, quote the Bible with ease, she rides and repairs her bikes, and she can punch your lights out. Check out Wicked Bitch. You won't be disappointed.

I really like this book. It is personally written by a girl who really has been through a lot and tells open her own adventures in the motorcycle world.

I have read this book and know the author. I was never going to actually review it despite many requests to do so because, frankly, it's what I consider a women's book, and I am a man and have absolutely no idea what women like. Or what they want. I mean…this book is deep deep DEEP into the female emotional maelstrom of female emotional maelstromness. I mean, what kind of men review this sort of thing. Really. Well, low and behold I eventually found out. Because I read the review of it here that has in the first sentence of itself the word "shemoozle." Or something close to it, and I got the sense that this was a review that was well on its way to being less of a review than a venting of some sort of personal vendetta. So I read the whole thing. I'd like to rebut a few items. A woman writing a book from a woman's point of view is not actually a problem. It's not actually something that makes it automatically worthless. Being poor is not something that is actually a moral and spiritual shortcoming. Combining poetical prose with vernacular and locale-specific idiomatic prose is not a literary offense. Having a terminal disease and attempting to live life to the fullest despite its seeming futility is not feeling sorry for ones-self, its an act of continuing courage and virtue. Being a female consort and fellow traveller with what the Law considers the lowest form of human life - the fiercely patriotic American Biker Slob - is actually very interesting. Not boring. Quoting sentence fragments and then actually mis-comprehending them in the context not provided by the reviewer is not a fault of the author. Making yourself the star of a review of someone else is not reviewing. It's a comparison.Read more ›

Sweet Home Alabama, Steele Magnolias, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Wicked Bitch are all beautiful, at times funny, and are all heartwarming stories of strong southern women living life to the fullest whenever they can find the strength, and picking themselves up and moving forward whenever they can't. Not just another memoir, Wicked Bitch by Amy Irene White, recounts the small town, Baptist upbringing of a feisty, red headed, freckled faced little girl, who comes into her own as a larger than life, fiery personality in the biker world.

From the beginning, one can walk barefooted with Amy as she runs through the Arkansas woods, and smell the magnolia flowers wafting their scent through the hot summer air, mingled with the always present odoriferous cow dung. Her Tomboy traits lead to countless fights and scraped knees and bruised fists are normal, temporary souvenirs of her raucous behavior. Readers can almost imagine being there as the little girl accompanied by her sister, climb up on paint thinner buckets to peer inside the workings of a garage where men, likely chewing tobacco and, with grease filled fingernails, twist wrenches on the behemoth motorcycles sitting lifeless atop jack stands awaiting the breath that will once again bring them to life. They can follow Amy as she in turn follows her Daddy around his paint and body shop, sniff the paint fumes as they burn their lungs, run their fingers alongside the long lines of a pick up truck awaiting the magic of the paint gun that will transform the classic Chevy into the beauty she once was.

In Wicked Bitch, read about and witness the transformation of the little girl as she comes of age and meets her first real loves.
