John Waters' memoir Role Models
is mostly autobiography, but he also takes time to explore notorious, outrageous figures who have inspired his anti-tastemaker sensibilities. On that list are a lesbian stripper, a Baltimore barkeep, the insane Saint Catherine of Siena, a marine pornographer, among other quirky fringe figures.
