...of all the memoirs i've read this year this one had the deepest impact. when i finished this book i was so emotionally broken that i had no choice but to really look deep within myself and realize that there are aspects of me that need to be thrown into the river...and then i was able to pick up the remaining pieces and put myself back together. so, i think it is safe to say that this book changed my life. i was surprised at how i responded to this book because i picked it up with judgement, not expecting to get anything out of it. how am i going to relate to a drag queen and what can i learn from a drag queen? i learned many lessons and i am so glad that josh kilmer-purcell shared his story because it moved me, helped me, changed me.

My favourite quote from the book is something like Transexuals are a gender trapped in the wrong body, and Transvestites are celebrities trapped in the wrong body. It was an interesting read regarding the topics of modern addication - crack cocaine, and an insight into the world of the Drag Queen world. Are Drag Queens transvestites? Maybe I should have read more carefully. I am always interested in the life of the Other, and the author does take you into his world of Drag Queen personalities, club life, love and loss. The book promised to have great laughs, but I think that the tragic element is the most overriding, tragic in the sense of drug addiction and the loss of control.
