Mama Jean was a Texan Elizabeth Taylor who never had a thought she didn’t speak. Daddy Poo adored bikinis and martinis as much as his homosexual son. Jamie Brickhouse, called “a natural raconteur” by the Washington Post and “funny, touching, honest” by Charles Busch, tells darkly-comic, ribald stories about his flamboyant parents and overcoming his near-fatal love affair with booze. Ripped from his award-winning shows Dangerous When Wet and I Favor My Daddy, they’re riveting, hilarious, wise, and deeply insightful.
