As a Waters fan, I was roaring,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America (Hardcover)
I am a huge John Waters fan, and JW fans will LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! I have read all his books, seen the movies, etc.... and it helps to be a fan (when he references other works, stories, etc... like his obsession with Gertrude Baniszewski). The "Worst" section of the book is hysterical, and I couldn't stop laughing (it was funny and sad at the same time). I love a great book/writer when you feel like you are actually in the room hanging out with them. John Waters is that writer. I'm not sure an "ordinary" book lover will get this book 100%, but I highly recommend it. Please John, don't stop writing!!!!
Edit... months after my review. This book is getting mean, horrible reviews... so let me stress this: If you are a Waters fan-- you will 100% adore this book. If you have never heard of Waters, or just enjoyed Hairspray (not Pink Flamingos) then pass on it. Don't blame John if you bought this book and knew nothing of his actual lifestyle.
