Last month, I saw John Waters perform at UCLA and I met him as he signed my copy of “Role Models.” I very carefully have read my autographed book (no spills or bends) and loved it! This book is mostly about the quirky people that Waters has grown to love and considers to be his Role Models. It is a very eclectic bunch of people…some famous, some infamous and mostly people that no one has every heard of! I love how he seeks out the people that most of us would not give a second glance to. Waters has a fascinating take on life and his enthusiasm spills over.
In particular, I loved the whole chapter on Leslie Van Houten and the chapter on books. He had a lot of great one liners and observations as someone who loves to read. I kept nodding in agreement as I read the chapter. I really liked the idea of his art pieces being his roommates. Waters views the world in such an offbeat and it’s great! I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
