About the Author
─ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
“…simultaneously witty and inspirational, has the potential to top the best commencement speeches of all time. … a great read. With simple, imaginative illustrations, it inspires all outsiders who strive to change society one brushstroke, word or shot at a time.”
─The Tufts Daily
“John Waters is the master of screwing things up beautifully, particularly alongside introspective doodles by Eric Hanson that accompany most of the book’s pages.. It’s thoughtfully considered, yet maintains some of Waters’ signature well-intentioned belligerence. Some of the pages are shocking or thought-provoking in their layout; Some of the accompanying images are contemplative while others are hilarious. Ultimately, Make Trouble leaves me wondering what to expect next from Waters. He is the modern day Oscar Wilde, but this book is by no means his De Profundis. It’s more of a reminder that he’s still out there, still thinking and creating, ready to — as he calls it — prepare a sneak attack on society. In a lot of ways, the book feels like his most intensely personal work yet. It’s nice to think that these words are aimed at students graduating college, but really they reflect Waters’ manifesto. The speech is timeless and could be taken from any point in his career, but it’s a reminder that he’s not done with us. With the massive social changes going on today, his words are poignant now more than ever.”
─ Johns Hopkins News-Letter
“…as funny as it is inspiring. Make Trouble is an injection of weirdness, joy, and provocation right into your brain.”

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I always thought Hairspray was his most subversive film and none of my friends ever agreed with me. It's nice to know Mr. Waters agrees with me!
That type of soul soaring subversion is needed now more than ever!

The copy I received though had bent/worn out edges and a dirty cover.
