I am not myself these days

Kilmer-Purcell, Josh. I Am Not Myself These Days: A Memoir.
New York: Harper Perennial, 2006.

If you like your stories with lots of love and squalor, then I Am Not Myself These Days by Josh Kilmer-Purcell is the right book for you. It's the surprisingly touching story of an alcoholic drag queen/advertising executive who falls in love with a well-heeled male prostitute.

Here's what the critics had to say:

" . . . Effortlessly entertaining yet still heartfelt; the romance of life as an escape artist."
--Kirkus Reviews

" . . . Readers will find this tale of good boy turned bad drag queen darkly hilarious and entertaining."
--Library Journal

" . . . It's one hell of a spellbinding read. Engrossing."
--Chicago Sun-Times
