'He is brilliant, unpredictable, compassionate and wise. He is also one of the finest craftsmen in songwriting of any genre, not just Country, that you can cite. In an industry that throws around 'songwriter' as if it were every day bologna, Schlitz is the real thing. I couldn't respect someone more, nor love anyone as much. ' -Mary Chapin Carpenter 'More than any other songwriter that plays the Bluebird Cafe, Don Schlitz charms everyone who comes to a show. They may never have heard his name, but they know his songs, and are thrilled to get to know him through his stories and songs. There is nothing like an evening with Don to give you an appreciation of a songwriters life. ' -Amy Kurland, founder Bluebird Cafe 'I've paid to see Don Schlitz perform.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll think someone's been reading your mail...and your mind and your heart. In Allergic to Crazy, Schlitz reveals that he is not only a poignant poet, but a 21st Century humorist, a chronicler of complicated relationships, and the guy you'd like sitting next to you at a baseball game.
