I Am Not Myself These Days: A Memoir - Josh Kilmer-Purcell This is an uproarious first person novel about a drag queen in New York City. His/her wastrel life in the clubs, finding love with a gorgeous, rich, kind male escort, having adventures both good and bad and doing it all with much humor and feeling. There is enough kink here for a room full of afros but the focus is on the humanity beneath the outrageous. Who would think that you could care about a guy who wears fishbowls with live fish swimming around in them for breasts? I loved his relationship with a female co-worker, loving bitchy. A river-funeral at the end was quite poignant. All that glitters can grow old. A moving, engaging book. It was fabulous.
