The New York Times bestselling, darkly funny memoirof a young New Yorker's daring dual life—advertising art director by day,glitter-dripping drag queen and nightclub beauty-pageant hopeful by night—was asmash literary debut for Josh Kilmer-Purcell, now known for his popular PlanetGreen television series The Fabulous Beekman Boys.His story begins here—before the homemade goat milk soaps and hand-gatheredhoneys, before his memoir of the city mouse’s move to the country, TheBucolic Plague—in I Am Not Myself These Days,  with “plenty of dishy anecdotes and moments of tragi-camp delight” (WashingtonPost).
I Am Not Myself These Days follows a glittering journey through Manhattan's dark underbelly -- a shocking and surreal world where alter egos reign and subsist (barely) on dark wit and chemicals...a tragic romantic comedy where one begins by rooting for the survival of the relationship and ends by hoping someone simply survives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome read! I bought this book blindly, and I'm so glad I did. It was an adventure form cover to cover, and although some of the ideas were very crazy (okay the whole premise of the book was pretty out there), it truly seemed honest and heartfelt. I can only hope to someday have half of the adventures and memories that are contained in this story, set in no other than NYC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hugs & Fishes A gorgeous book full of glitter and garbage - the author takes you on an amazing journey, exposing himself and a particular time in his life that is often hilarious, sometimes harrowing, but always enlilghtening. Buy this book, you will thank yourself - if you don't, well... you would never have got past the velvet rope anyway. Love you Josh Purcell
