    4.5 out of 5 stars 48

Born into the beautiful bedlam of downtown New York in the eighties, iO Tillett Wright came of age at the intersection of punk, poverty, heroin, and art. This was a world of self-invented characters, glamorous superstars, and strung-out sufferers, ground zero of drag and performance art. Still, no personality was more vibrant and formidable than iO's mother's. Rhonna, a showgirl and young widow, was a mercurial, erratic glamazon. She was iO's fiercest defender and only authority in a world with few boundaries and even fewer indicators of normal life.

I love her voices. it's always interesting to take a peek into someone else's life but because she lied about a few things in life sometimes it's hard to verify what is the truth and what is her imagination it's a good book if you know who I owe is and are familiar with her work and her speeches if you get the chance to see her live don't miss it. I am excited if she writes another book about what she does now and her project of bringing more awareness and understanding for the lgbtq community.

I loved it. Made me think of how well off I am in life. Also how I can become a millionaire by duping dumb people with a made up religion.
