Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Divine, the fat drag-queen superstar of outre filmmaker John Waters' early films (Pink Flamingos remains the most famous), elicits from some the same visceral abreaction to the very fact that he existed. Such persons see Divine as an affront to moral well-beingindeed, as Frank Zappa used to say, to America herself. To Waters buffs and those captivated by female impersonators, however, Divine is an icon, theatrical outrageousness done to perfection. When he died, Divine was described by some newscasters as the famous character actor, but for most of his career, the descriptor attached to his name was transvestite. The media's and society's inability to see past that designation long irritated Divine and others who admired his work. But, just as Andy Warhol lived long enough to be taken seriously as an artist rather than a pop culture phenomenon, Divine and Waters were beginning to receive accolades for their early work as art rather than outrageous contrivance. Unfortunately, Divine died before his artistic rehabilitation was complete. This sympathetic biography tells his story with grace and humor worthy of Divi himself. May he rest in peace. Mike Tribby
