9781907616624: Role Models

Here, from the incomparable John Waters, is a paean to the power of subversive inspiration that will delight, amuse, enrich―and happily horrify readers everywhere.

Role Models is, in fact, a self-portrait told through intimate profiles of favorite personalities―some famous, some unknown, some criminal, some surprisingly middle-of-the-road. From Esther Martin, owner of the scariest bar in Baltimore, to the playwright Tennessee Williams; from the atheist leader Madalyn Murray O'Hair to the insane martyr Saint Catherine of Siena; from the English novelist Denton Welch to the timelessly appealing singer Johnny Mathis―these are the extreme figures who helped the author form his own brand of neurotic happiness.

Role Models is a personal invitation into one of the most unique, perverse, and hilarious artistic minds of our time.

About the Author:

John Waters is an American filmmaker, actor, writer, and visual artist best known for his cult films, including Hairspray, Pink Flamingos, and Cecil B. DeMented. He lives in Baltimore, Maryland.

From AudioFile:

In this memoir, filmmaker John Waters (PINK FLAMINGOS) discusses people he admires and proves himself a preeminent provocateur. But it's not all shock value. He's an eloquent writer who can turn a witty phrase almost as deftly as one of the book's subjects, Tennessee Williams, and do so with convincing style. This goes for his narration as well. Waters comes off as insightful--if not excessively camp--but his flamboyance is infectious. He minces but doesn't mince words. Although some may take umbrage at his choices of talismans--Manson family murderer Leslie Van Houten, for instance--Waters, who once venerated the murderous cult for being "the filthiest people alive," has to be admired for his ironic sensibilities. His embrace of everything politically incorrect is actually refreshing in the current climate. J.S.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
