Book Summary

When Party Monster was first published, it created a storm of controversy for its startlingly vivid, strikingly fresh, and outrageous depiction of the hedonistic world of the 90s New York City club kids, for whom nothing was too outré—including murder. Nominated for the Edgar Award for best true-crime book of the year, it also marked the debut of an audaciously talented writer, James St. James, who himself had been a club kid and close friend and confidant of Michael Alig, the young man convicted of killing the drug dealer known as Angel. This is the inside story of life in clubs like The Tunnel and The Limelight and hanging with leading lights like Keith Haring and RuPaul and the drugs, sex, music, and mayhem that existed during the heyday of New York City club culture.

    I am waiting for my third copy to arrive. I read it religiously. James St James is a brilliant, fantastically fabulous story teller. I read it when it was first published and haven't stopped! Freak Show too. The stories are great, but only told by James! Please write more!!

    If you remember this era and NYC nightlife you will understand and appreciate this book. It's a great tale and helps the movie where it was blank.
