This is memoir about an alcoholic drag queen (by night, marketing agent by day), and a slowly deteriorating relationship between him and his high class whore of a boyfriend (who is actually really sweet, until he starts hitting the crack pipe). This book isn't for the squeamish, or those who are new to reading about the underground world of hard core drugs and gay sex.

One of my favorite parts of the book is when the author describes what it takes to get into his character, Aqua at night- so very elaborate. and you get the sense that he really loves this part of the process. Otherwise, the book is rather depressing, while entertaining, and I really hope that because the guy wrote this book, it must mean he is doing better and on a better path in life-alcohol wise.
