I'm Not Myself These Days

This phrase may not mean much anymore, but I couldn't put down this book: I'm Not Myself These Days.

A memoir by Josh Kilmer-Purcell, also a best-seller in 2006, this memoir tells the story of a drag queen living in New York City with his male escort boyfriend. How interesting and bizarre. It might sound a bit strange, but the absurdity really caught my attention.

I love to read about bizarre tales that are so far from my own, especially if they are true stories. I also enjoy reading about lives in New York City, because it's such a crazy lifestyle that I envy but honestly do not see myself pursuing. I am not cut out for that life, even though I love to peer inside its lens.

If anyone has read it, throw some comments here. I'd love any feedback.

If you are an Anthony Burgess fan, I would definitely put this memoir on the top of my list.
