Unsinkable Bambi Lake : A Fairy Tale Containing the Dish on Cockettes, Punks, and Angles - (Paperback)
About this item
An intimate account of one individual's evolution from innocent, suburban Johnny Purcell in the '60s into fabulous, infamous Bambi Lake. From a fantasy filled childhood to San Francisco's queer salad days in the '70s absolutely nothing is off-topic in this dramatic, revealing memoir. With new photos and an Epilogue: 20 Years Later.
Author and infamous chanteuse Bambi Lake has been the subject of a documentary (“Sticks & Stones”), a ballad revival (“Golden Age of Hustlers”), and has inspired those who have followed in the decades since her first appearance with The Cockettes in the early 1970s.
