"Absolutely hilarious and heartbreaking and heartfelt"
'Sex, drugs, money, men dressed as women, women trying to care for them, real jobs and pretend jobs, make-up and glitter and high heels and fake tits and goldfish, true love, doomed love, crazy stupid destructive love, big expensive apartments, dirty trash strewn alleys, heartbreak and loneliness, disco balls and dance clubs, pain pain pain and beautiful New York City, I Am Not Myself These Days is a wonderful book, a ridiculous book, a sad and beautiful book, a book I'll read again, a book I highly recommend.'
James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces
'I AM NOT MYSELF THESE DAYS is a glittering, bittersweet vision of an outsider who turned himself into the life and soul of the party. Kilmer-Purcell's cast is part freak-show, part soap opera, but his prose is graced with such insight and wit that the laughter is revelatory, and the tears - and there are tears to be shed along this extraordinary journey - are shed for people in whom everybody will find something of themselves. In a word, wonderful.'

in high hair and falsies'" (Liz Smith)
