I Am Not Myself These Days by Josh Kilmer-Purcell

This memoir is a tragic as well as funny account of Kilmer-Purcell’s early days in New York living dual lives. By day as advertising art director and a drag queen ‘Aquadisiac’ by night. The memoir goes into detail about his relationship with a crack addict named Jack and this memoir was a NY Times bestseller in 2006.

Kilmer-Purcell is really a terrifically blessed fresh fictional sound which straddles the partition in between absurdity as well as normalcy, and appears all of them in addition to unexpected comedy and depressed poignancy. Because Booklist talked “as sour and humorous like a Noel Coward perform, with regard to Kilmer-Purcell is particularly proficient at conversation, as well as,  Coward’s greatest games, within the humorous sits the unhappy reality which also at our greatest, many of us are vulnerable, fallible fools. Many times with this wealthy, adventure-filled book, Kilmer-Purcell demonstrates the reality of Blake’s saying, ‘The way of excessive results in the structure of intelligence.’”
