There’s more to life than being fabulous... but it’s a start Roz and Jamie have moved to leafy Suffolk from London in search of a quiet life, so it’s a shock to find the village embarking on its riotous annual drag competition. Fuelled by large quantities of alcohol and boisterous community spirit, they are soon caught up in a battle for the identity of the village itself against those who’d prefer to stay stuck in the past. Meanwhile in San Francisco, Drew is facing his own challenge to save his drag club and the livelihoods of his closest friends. When he finds out about a small English village putting on a drag competition, inspiration strikes – and worlds collide. Appearances are not everything and sometimes human connections can surprise us, but will these realisations be too late to save the village and Drew’s club? A gorgeously fun, heartwarming and tender story of unexpected friendships and acceptance. 'This is like an edgy Jilly Cooper – lots of eccentric characters and a lot of fun!'

This book is about....wonderful hopes, and shattered dreams, the pain of growing up, and the pains of loosing family. It is about.....what we think we cannot live through, but find we can. It is about conquering our mind and changing to what God wants us to be. It is about those things that we can conquer in life and how to be proud of those accomplishments, but more important it is what we can be if we do not give up. This life is not easy! What seems today as the worst day in our life, tomorrow just becomes a memory. I am so glad I did not give up during those difficult times. It is a story of redemption and salvation. It is a story of tragedy and triumph, of despair and being able to overcome what looks to be hopeless!He has been an accomplished survivor for over 70 years. He went from early family tragedy and low self-worth, to marriages and divorces, children, the military, dark days, the cheers of thousands as a female impersonator, singer, dancer, M.C., comedian, and stripper, to alcoholism and the very sexual 60’s and 70’s, and finally the humbleness of God’s Grace.

While it is true that there have been forms of drag, both private and public, since earliest times, as a form of modern entertainment drag in recent years has developed into a phenomenon which is now a world-wide multi-million pound entertainment industry in itself. This penetrating study, giving a depth background of the world drag scene is, however, primarily a book about one drag artist - the hugely-successful Danny La Rue, himself a veritable Industry of Drag and unquestionably the highest-paid performer of his type in the world. Strangely, no one has previously written a book about Danny la Rue, probably because he is a very private person despite his huge public persona. To write this work, Peter Underwood, the well-established author of the highly-successful Boris Karloff biography and other books, researched widely and interviewed nearly seventy people close to the drag star - people who have worked with Danny la Rue both on and off stage over many years. The result is this absorbing story of a unique star which intimately surveys the life and work of the Irish Danny la Rue. He started on the stage in a village hall, later joined the Navy at 17 and became in turn a window dresser, chorus boy and then left the stage to work in a shop, returning to the theatre and the chorus to become a dancer and drag artist in an all-male show (which he left because he couldn't stand it). He was eventually spotted in a small revue at London's Irving Theatre and offered his big chance in cabaret at Bond Street's Churchill Club. So began the real success story of the fabulous Danny la Rue - a succession of successes: His own exclusive night club, recordings, countless pantomime hit shows, two Royal Command Performances, his first film, his three homes, three cars, greyhounds and racehorses, his hugely successful summer seasons, television appearances and the acclamation by the Variety Club of Great Britain as 'Show Business Personality of The Year'. Surrounding the story of the inimitable Danny la Rue is a vivid examination of the Drag Scene which has projected Danny's success - how it has become a major entertainment phenomenon in top theatres, on TV, films and in pubs and clubs throughout the world. Author Underwood relevantly appraises the lure of drag, the pleasures and the pain, the hard work, the dangers and the impact of what is daily becoming an ever-growing phenomenon of the twentieth century's Permissive Age.
