What to expect

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Diary of a Drag Queen, written and read by Tom Rasmussen.

Life's a drag...

'Stories like the one where you shagged a 79-year-old builder and knocked over his sister’s ashes while feeding him a Viagra. Or the time you crashed your car because you were giving a hand job in barely moving traffic and took your eye off the car in front. That’s the kind of dinner-party ice-breaker I’m talking about.'

Northern, working-class and shagging men three times her age, Crystal writes candidly about her search for ‘the one’; sleeping with an editor in an attempt to become a world famous journalist; getting hired and fired by a well-known fashion magazine; being torn between losing weight and gorging on KFC; and her need for constant sexual satisfaction (and where that takes her).

Charting her day-to-day adventures over the course of a year, we encounter tucks, twists and sucks, heinous overspending and endless nights spent sprinting from problem to problem in a full face of makeup.

This is a place where the previously unspeakable becomes the commendable – a unique portrayal of the queer experience.

A proud voice for the non-binary community

Gay Times

This book honestly changed my life. Tom’s honesty, vulnerability and fearlessness jumps out of every page and every word. It is the queer bible I’ve always needed and I don’t remember life BT (before Tom)

Sam Smith

Diary of a Drag Queen is a heartfelt memoir of queerness and non-conformity

Vogue

A riotous portrayal of the contemporary queer experience

Dazed

Truthful, revealing and obscenely hilarious […] Strident and unapologetic but really sweet, too.
