John Waters, Filmmaker "Unbuttoning America: A Biography of 'Peyton Place'" by Ardis Cameron. My favorite genre: nonfiction books about the best fictitious town in America. I wish I lived there in real life!"
Sarah Waters, Author, The Paying Guests "I'm most looking forward to settling down with Seth Koven's The Match Girl and the Heiress, which chronicles the unlikely cross-class friendship between a Victorian factory girl and a wealthy female philanthropist. It looks like a riveting, inspiring read."
David Levithan, Author, Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story "Bill Konigsberg's The Porcupine of Truth. It's a laugh-out-loud funny, hurt-in-your-gut rendition of a prickly teenage road trip that becomes a reckoning with both personal and gay history. A wild and wildly satisfying ride."
Lady Bunny, Drag Artist "I want to check out Naomi Klein's new book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate. After single-handedly destroying the ozone layer with the hair spray used at Wigstock, I'm now trying to be more environmentally conscious."
