SF: Manic D Press, 1996. Wrps. (no h/c issued), 160pp. Illustrated. Introduction by Exene Cervenka.

SIGNED and inscribed by the legendary (and recently deceased) transgender performer on the half-title page: "To Miss Clare, Here's to Fairies Goddess Rock 'n Roll Boys Mermaids Punk Glitter Gold Silver Roses and Rent. Love Bambi Lake".

A "highly personal account of one individual's evolution from innocent, suburban Johnny Purcell into fabulous, sophisticated Bambi Lake", taking in "San Francisco's queer salad days in the '70s" (gay communes, the Angels, Cockettes, Kaliflower) through to her work as a "chanteuse, stripper, actress, and spoken word artist."

Co-author Alvin Orloff was a member of the San Francisco homocore band, The Popstitutes (whose last gig was at a 'Smutfest' in London in 1994), and now manages Dog Eared Books Castro.
