Role Models : Here, from the incomparable John Waters, is a paean to the power of subversive inspiration that will delight, amuse, enrich - and happily horrify readers everywhere. Role Models is, in fact, a self-portrait told through intimate profiles of favorite personalities - some famous, some unknown, some criminal, some surprisingly middle-of-the-road. From Esther Martin, owner of the scariest bar in Baltimore, to the playwright Tennessee Williams; from the atheist leader Madalyn Murray OâHair to the insane martyr Saint Catherine of Siena; from the English novelist Denton Welch to the timelessly appealing singer Johnny Mathis - these are the extreme figures who helped the author form his own brand of neurotic happiness. Role Models is a personal invitation into one of the most unique, perverse, and hilarious artistic minds of our time. NOTE: This is a Scratch and Dent version and accordingly MAY NOT have a dust jacket.
