I Am Not Myself These Days
A Memoir (P.S.)
Josh Kilmer-Purcell - 2006-02-07
Goodreads Rating
A darkly funny memoir of a young New Yorker's daring dual life as an advertising art director by day and a glitter-dripping drag queen by night. This smash literary debut is filled with dishy anecdotes and moments of tragi-camp delight.
