My name's yours, what's Alaska? : a memoir / Flannery, Thomas
My name is yours, what's Alaska?
"Before RuPaul's Drag Race became a worldwide phenomenon, Drag was mostly an underground art form, performed by the daring and the quick-witted with maximum energy and a minimal budget. This is the story of one of the galaxy's greatest queens, Alaska Thunderfuck 5000, as she transforms from wearing dresses made of trash bags because she has to, to wearing dresses made of trash bags because she wants to. A dishy and intimate memoir told with poise and humor that recounts Alaska's meteoric rise to fame-from childhood makeovers of Mighty Mouse to chart topping hits, from prom king to the House of the Haunt-Alaska reveals the stories that shaped her into an All Star, including the full story behind the very public breakup that almost destroyed her. With exclusive photography and original art throughout, this raw and compelling behind-the-scenes and before-Drag-Race account is a wild ride from start to finish"--Provided by publisher.

Above ground : poems / Smith, Clint

Clint Smith's vibrant and compelling new collection traverses the vast emotional terrain of fatherhood, and explores how becoming a parent has recalibrated his sense of the world. There are poems that interrogate the ways our lives are shaped by both personal lineages and historical institutions. There are poems that revel in the wonder of discovering the world anew through the eyes of your children, as they discover it for the first time. There are poems that meditate on what it means to raise a family in a world filled with constant social and political tumult. Above Ground wrestles with how we hold wonder and despair in the same hands, how we carry intimate moments of joy and a collective sense of mourning in the same body. Smith's lyrical, narrative poems bring the reader on a journey not only through the early years of his children's lives, but through the changing world in which they are growing up--through the changing world of which we are all a part.
