Today (October 19th) would have been Divine’s birthday.
So it’s a perfect time to recommend one of our favourite books, Role Models by John Waters.
If you are a fan of Waters, then this book is a must. In a witty, dry and at times beautifully sensitive prose, Waters runs down the role models in his life. Who made him who he is today. Some surprising, some shocking – every entry led me to read more on the subject. It’s a book that leads you somewhere …
I was particularly interested, being a book-girl myself, in his ‘Bookworm’ chapter – where he runs down his literary heroes. Here’s a link to the Vice site, which ran an excerpt of the book – so you can see for yourself.
Copies of Role Models – available in hardback and paperback – at the Shop now. We have a limited number of SIGNED first edition hardcovers, too. (Besides being a read you’ll love – this book makes a great gift)
