The Tarnished Wisdom of a Filth Elder

Some killer news for a Tuesday evening -- John Waters has a brand new book coming out! It's titled Mr. Know-It-All: The Tarnished Wisdom of a Filth Elder and it hits the street on May the 21st and not that it matters, you should already have pre-ordered it by now, but here's how Amazon describes it:

"No one knows more about everything ― especially everything rude, clever, and offensively compelling ― than John Waters. The man in the pencil-thin mustache, auteur of the transgressive movie classics Pink Flamingos, Polyester, the original Hairspray, Cry-Baby, and A Dirty Shame, is one of the world’s great sophisticates, and in Mr. Know-It-All he serves it up raw: how to fail upward in Hollywood; how to develop musical taste from Nervous Norvus to Maria Callas; how to build a home so ugly and trendy that no one but you would dare live in it; more important, how to tell someone you love them without emotional risk; and yes, how to cheat death itself. Through it all, Waters swears by one undeniable truth: “Whatever you might have heard, there is absolutely no downside to being famous. None at all.”

Studded with cameos of Waters’s stars, from Divine and Mink Stole to Johnny Depp, Kathleen Turner, Patricia Hearst, and Tracey Ullman, and illustrated with unseen photos from Waters’s personal collection, Mr. Know-It-All is Waters’s most hypnotically readable, upsetting, revelatory book―another instant Waters classic."

Head on over and pre-order your copy right now, ya
bunch of filthy fucking animals. When god speaks, ya listen.

I put this on hold at the library, and the website was like “we don’t own this yet, would you like to read The Story of Seabiscuit?”
