Take a drug addicted, gay male, hooker from Southern Cali and a Midwestern alcoholic drag queen and pair them up for seven turbulent months living together in Midtown Manhattan and you get a mess; But an intriguing read nonetheless. Gave it 5*'s as it held my undivided attention until the end.
The cute cover drew me in and the sharp writing and witty dialogue kept me reading through this often-shocking look at the lifestyle of a drag queen. A peek into a world you might not know exists, this tale isn't for everyone.
It's hard to write a review of book that already has so many great reviews. For me the book was not only an enjoyable and exciting pastime but also an opportunity to read about a world completely foreign to me. The author's description of his life as a drag queen is not only captivating but also outrageous. It made me drop my mouth open in parts, shake my head but also laugh outloud. I'm so glad I had a chance to read this memoir and discover the world of drag queens.
One of the most FUN books I have ever read. I am not sure how Kilmer-Purcell weaves together a story that is all at once horrifying, hysterical, disgusting, and endearing, but he pulls it off. It is a great peak into a world many people never knew truly existed, and will keep you captivated in the ONE sitting you will read it in. The story at times perhaps seems sensationalized, but it is effective and affecting. Can't wait to read it again!
