The Weird World of John Waters

Book - 2002
Rate this:
This is both a biography and a cultural study of John Waters, the cult phenomenon behind such films as Hairspray', 'Polyester', 'Cry Baby' and Pecker'. Recollections of friends and colleagues paint a portrait of a director who is both more and less insane than his own vision, while Pela visits a Baltimore that is a surreal reflection of the director's hyperbolic fantasies, including a beyond-the-grave interview with the infamous Divine, and culminating in a book that is as remarkable, hilarious, boundary-pushing and just plain weird as Waters's own films.
