Brian Bradley's stellar work of biographic journalism brings the outsized public figure down to an intimate realm, enhancing our appreciation of a most enchanting madman.
Peter Howell, Movie Critic for the Toronto Star
Brian Bradley writes with the love of a fan and the meticulous research of a skilled journalist.
Graham Rockingham, journalist and editor
Often heartwarming, more often heartbreaking, Brian Bradley’s close-to-the-bone, meticulously researched biography offers both startling revelations and astute analysis of two uniquely self-destructive individuals who truly live up to his title. Outrageous Misfits is a riveting, relentlessly entertaining read.
George Anthony, former entertainment editor for Toronto Sun
Outrageous Misfits is also the story of Toronto's gay scene from the 1970s to present day ... The book's many evocative black-and-white photos are a bonus.
Gay & Lesbian Review
Outrageous Misfits is a brave attempt at exploring a man and a career that we will tragically never get to fully understand or know the truth of.
[Handled] with the utmost respect and care ... Outrageous Misfits gives the "king of queens" and his "number one" the credit they deserve."
Literary Review of Canada
Outrageous Misfits is an engrossing read about a time gone by, with rich details on Provincetown, which set the trajectory for today's drag queen phenomenon, as well as an intimate portrait of two true characters who found each other and became partners in a madcap life.
