This memoir/bio reads rather like his stage act: funny and scattered. I've enjoyed his shows for many years but only recently did I realize his dresses and makeup were not part of his act (as in one of Flip Wilson's or Milton Berle's female characters) but of his very self (he came out as transgender way before it was cool). Today, this is less provocative but when he started doing it on stage way back when, it was quite risky for his career and his well being. I wanted to learn more about him and this book does a fair job of that. He's worked hard and his success is well earned. If you like Eddie's comedy, do give this a read. He's a good bloke and it's worth your time.
