Role Models

'Role Models' is the latest book by John Waters and will be released May 25th. Here is a short description of the book that I pulled from Amazon:

"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 O’Hair 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."

And for all of us obsessed, John Waters will doing a book tour/lecture series to promote the book. He will be at Atomic Books on June 5  at 7pm and Barnes & Nobles at Johns Hopkins on September 16 at 7pm. For more info about the tour and everything else John Waters, please visit Dreamland.
