Some brief overview of book

The newest essay collection from the New York Times bestselling author John Waters, reflecting on how to overcome newfound respectability and rebel in the autumn of your years. No one knows more about everythingespecially everything rude, clever, and offensively compellingthan John Waters. The man in the pencil-thin mustache, auteur of the transgressive movie classics Pink Flamingos, Polyester, Hairspray, Cry-Baby, and A Dirty Shame, is one of the worlds great sophisticates, and in Mr. Know-It-All he serves it up raw how to fail upward in Hollywood; how to develop musical taste, from Nervous Norvus to Maria Callas; how to build a home so ugly and trendy that no one but you would dare live in it; more important, how to tell someone you love them without emotional risk; and yes, how to cheat death itself.

Through it all, Waters swears by one undeniable truth "Whatever you might have heard, there is absolutely no downside to being famous. None at all." Studded with cameos, from Divine and Mink Stole to Johnny Depp, Kathleen Turner, Patricia Hearst, and Tracey Ullman, and illustrated with unseen photos from the author's personal collection, Mr. Know-It-All is Waters most hypnotically readable, upsetting, revelatory bookanother instant Waters classic. Praise for John Waters "Waters doesnt kowtow to the received wisdom, he flips it the bird .

. . Waters has the ability to show humanity at its most ridiculous and make that funny rather than repellent." Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post "Carsick becomes a portrait not just of Americas desolate freeway nodesthough theyre brilliantly evokedbut of American fame itself." Lawrence Osborne, The New York Times Book Review
