I've Been Looking for a Good Book about Drag Queens and Crackwhores







And, inadvertently, thanks to a link from Miss Jill, I think I've found exactly what I'm looking for. And used copies are available on the evil Amazon for less than three dollars. An excerpt:

"My boyfriend is standing over me with a knife. Two nights ago, after he had come home from a three-day crack binge, he decided that I could have the rest of the month to get my stuff together and move out of our, well his, penthouse. He then returned to his regularly scheduled cocaine programming and hadn't come home since. Until now.
Hey, it should be a fun read.

In addition, Miss Jill's post reference another project that looks entertaining: Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure. However, admittedly, those types of projects are somewhat limited in entertainment value unless taken in small doses over time; otherwise, they feel like the kind of book that you can get the entire gist of merely by quickly leafing through while standing in the aisle at Borders.

Oh, and even though the joke is getting tired, the above is my homage to another Drag Queen Crackwhore of sorts.

You and Jill always have such great resources. I heard that 6-word history piece on NPR and loved it. That sort of inspired my product label dating advice for my Interactive Monday assignment.

I read that last year sometime - it's definitely one of those tear-through-it-in-one-go kind of books.

enjoy it!
