"If you are a recent lover of drag, and have really only been exposed through Drag Race, then Frank DeCaro's new book, Drag: Combing Through the Big Wigs of Show Business, is for you. The new book is here to teach the children about the history of drag, shining a spotlight on those who sashayed in heels long before the queens of Drag Race." --LOGO TV/Next New Now

"DeCaro's new primer, out now on Rizzoli Books, includes profiles of dozens of drag queens--pop-culture fixtures like RuPaul, Harvey Fierstein and Divine, but also acclaimed contemporary performers like Hedda Lettuce, Dina Martina and Murray Hill, one of the only drag kings to break big." --NEWSWEEK.COM
