it was amazing

Write a review...I'm so glad John Waters wrote this book. I had the good fortune of reading both his SHOCK VALUE and CRACKPOT immediately before and in doing so was given a rare glimpse at the evolution of an artist. While the specter of old age looms its head over the final chapters of Waters' life, this time around his trademark acerbic wit takes on the philosophical tone of a man at peace with his world - or at least his role in it as a former counter-cultural icon who's become part of the popculter. With the focus of this collection of essays being on other people and artists whom Waters seeks inspiration from, Waters provides readers with a little seen peak into his world that's made all the more personal with a revealing frankness and honesty - Waters isn't afraid to lay himself bare for his fans to see, warts and all. The result is a refreshing read, especially when compared to other recent celebrity memoirs.
