Publisher's Summary

This is not a hair book. It's a dark comedy of a spiritual misfit, a child with a dream born into the wrong town. Religious cults, corporate cults, and insane clients - Francis can't catch a break. Francis has observed his own inability to fit in since birth, and his decision to be a professional cosmetologist only exacerbates his innate oddness.

Following Plan C

This is the story of a boy who wanted to grow up and be a circus clown—but his family was insistent that he should be a priest!

The writing is clever and funny—and just a little sad. The fun is in his deadpan observances of the adults in Francis’s world, their quirks, contradictions, and vanities, that bring them to life. French Canadian Catholic family—very true to life.

Paul Boehmer’s narration is spot-on a straight-faced, a reading that lets the ridiculousness of the stories sink in and shine on their own.

Hilarious. Waiting for the sequel.

This rare peek inside the hilarity and confusion of the 80s and 90s from the perspective of growing up gay is sublime. I love the biting, sarcastic humor. The description of Tammy falling at the end does not disappoint. I must know - are you now a performing clown?
