HOW YOU GET FAMOUS by Nicole Pasulka received a starred review from Booklist. Reviewer Emily Dziuban writes: “Like its subjects, this first book by journalist Pasulka is a national treasure. Authentically, sensitively, and expansively recording the personal and sociopolitical realities of drag in Brooklyn from 2011 to 2021, this compendium preserves the people, places, and evolving culture that made drag famous…The book’s impressively broad lens is matched by its zoom-in on the details of drag. Readers will learn drag-specific lexicon and cultural competencies that make this subculture unlike any other and influential beyond any expectations.” Simon & Schuster will publish the book on June 7, 2022.
