I adore John Water's unique vision of life, eclectic references from stage, screen, music, and pop culture, and his good-natured, down-to-earth honesty. Whether talking of his love for Comme des Garçons or his realistic and measured defense of Leslie Van Houten, Waters delivers insights that are original, heartfelt, and intelligent.
He has the references of Greil Marcus without any of the pretension, and his discussions of fame are so human, they seem really unique to me.
I have never heard him read an audiobook, but I've seen him live, and he's a brilliant performer (as well as director.) He's simply a star, but in the most human way possible. I love him!
Yes, but at over 7 hours, I listened in two hour or so chunks.
This is a fantastic reflection on idols, admiration, and human attraction--John Waters does it again!
This is among the best audiobooks I've heard. I think it's particularly powerful since it's read by the author. I really love the way that di Rossi delivered an incredibly moving story, but without sentimentality or cheesiness. This is a must-read/must-hear book for anyone interested in the development of a woman finding herself, and carving out a life on her own terms.
