Some interesting stories but the lack of narrative structure and poor writing kind of made me wish I hadn't started. This may not be Hagen's strongest medium. Would be more interested in these stories if delivered differently.

Brilliantly written. These are the stories from Darrin Hagen's award winning play. This book will make you laugh, it is crazy and fun. The real life characters are all larger than life and so is the hair...the bigger the hair the closer to God! A hilarious look at a whole decade. As it says on the book jacket "There's more here than sex, drugs and haberdashery."

How can I call myself and Edmontonian without reading this book? I can't believe it took me so long to get to it. I really appreciate Darrin being the heart and memory of the 80's and 90's Drag community, so many stories, and we've lost so many. Heartfelt, nostalgic, funny, a must-read for any Edmontonian!

Essays about drag queen life in Edmonton in the 1980s. I found this collection to be rollicking and heartbreaking and really enjoyed it. Lots of camp in here too.
