Here, from the incomparable John Waters, is a paean to the power of subversive inspiration that will delight, amuse, enrich - and happily horrify readers everywhere. Role Models is, in fact, a self-portrait told through intimate profiles of favorite personalities - some famous, some unknown, some criminal, some surprisingly middle-of-the-road. From Esther Martin, owner of the scariest bar in Baltimore, to the playwright Tennessee Williams; from the atheist leader Madalyn Murray O'Hair to the insane martyr Saint Catherine of Siena; from the English novelist Denton Welch to the timelessly appealing singer Johnny Mathis - these are the extreme figures who helped the author form his own brand of neurotic happiness. Role Models is a personal invitation into one of the most unique, perverse, and hilarious artistic minds of our time.

John Waters is an American film director, screenwriter, actor and author. He was born in Baltimore, Maryland on April, 22, 1946. Waters developed a cult following in the 1970s and '80s for his transgressive cult films that were intended to shock and amuse. Filmed around his native Baltimore, his early films were shot on a shoe-string budget and starred a recurring group of relatively unknown actors called the Dreamlanders. His first mainstream success came with the release of Hairspray in 1988, which was adapted into a long-running Broadway musical in 2002. His other popular films include: Crybaby, Serial Mom and Cecil B. Demented. In addition to filmmaking and other artistic endeavors, Waters has written numerous books. His most recent is entitled Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America. Other works include: Role Models, Art: A Sex Book, Crackpot: The Obsessions of John Waters, and Shock Value.
