Edition : Unabridged library ed.

Description :

Language: English . Brand New. I Am Not Myself These Days follows a glittering journey through Manhattan s dark underbelly-a shocking and surreal world where alter egos reign and subsist (barely) on dark wit and chemicals.a tragic romantic comedy where one begins by rooting for the survival of the relationship and ends by hoping someone simply survives. Kilmer-Purcell is a terrifically gifted new literary voice who straddles the divide between absurdity and normalcy, and stitches them together with surprising humor and lonely poignancy. As Booklist raved, I Am Not Myself These Days is as tart and funny as a Noel Coward play, for Kilmer-Purcell is especially good at dialogue, and, as in Coward s best plays, under the comedy lies the sad truth that even at our best, we are all weak, fallible fools. Again and again in this rich, adventure-filled book, Kilmer-Purcell illustrates the truth of Blake s proverb, The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.

Synopsis :

Josh Kilmer-Purcell lived a double life. By day, he was a successful young advertising executive. By night, he would trade in his corporate uniform for high heels and sequins, and perform in downtown New York nightclubs as a drag queen called Acquadisiac before returning to the uptown penthouse he shared with his crack-addicted male escort boyfriend. In this powerfully written, emotional rollercoaster of a memoir, Kilmer-Purcell blends the glittering and highly dramatic world of nightclubs, drugs and drag with a soulful and ironic perspective on his own journey through love and life.

Told with a raw and honest voice that conveys hard truths with unflinching courage, I Am Not Myself These Days is a stunningly witty and ultimately deeply moving tour de force by a remarkable new talent.

Critique: "Absolutely hilarious and heartbreaking and heartfelt"

"

'Sex, drugs, money, men dressed as women, women trying to care for them, real jobs and pretend jobs, make-up and glitter and high heels and fake tits and goldfish, true love, doomed love, crazy stupid destructive love, big expensive apartments, dirty trash strewn alleys, heartbreak and loneliness, disco balls and dance clubs, pain pain pain and beautiful New York City, I Am Not Myself These Days is a wonderful book, a ridiculous book, a sad and beautiful book, a book I'll read again, a book I highly recommend.'

James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces

"

"

'I AM NOT MYSELF THESE DAYS is a glittering, bittersweet vision of an outsider who turned himself into the life and soul of the party. Kilmer-Purcell's cast is part freak-show, part soap opera, but his prose is graced with such insight and wit that the laughter is revelatory, and the tears - and there are tears to be shed along this extraordinary journey - are shed for people in whom everybody will find something of themselves. In a word, wonderful.'

Clive Barker
