Michael Alig - someone you are both fascinated by and petrified of. James St James experienced the 'club kid' culture first hand and tranfers it onto paper beautifully. Someone who has never dabbled in destructive drugs may find the constant references tiring, but I feel there is a balance between the drug storyline and the whole intriguing world of the club kids, from Matt Lipstick to Peter Peter Boyfriend Stealer. I find the most amazingly weird part is, although you are told explicitly that Alig murdered Angel Melendez, somehow the magnitude and terrifying nature of the act diminish because it was done by Michael Alig. You can somehow understand why no one believed him at the time...
