In a Whirl of Delusion

J R Greenwell (Author)


With the help of a big-hearted team of misfits, Chester Davis, a tall, gawky refugee from the Morning Glory Trailer Park in Birmingham, is transformed into Daphne DeLight, an aspiring drag queen with the delusional quest of becoming the next Miss Gay Drag Queen Alabama. Or is it? Both Chester and Daphne are blessed with an inspirational naivety and ambition that won't surrender to any humiliation. Quirky, clever, and infused with a Southern gothic campiness, In a Whirl of Delusion is a marvelous series of misadventures on a road toward love and fame.

Praise for J.R. Greenwell's Who the Hell is Rachel Wells?

"It's impossible to resist the adorable appeal of the collective world Greenwell has created on page, populated with larger-than-life characters who are each worthy of a novel of their own. He has crafted a memorable collection of short stories that will certainly establish him as a powerful new voice in Southern literature."
--David-Matthew Barnes, Lambda Literary

"Winning, witty, and wise. Greenwell has a talent for creating immediately recognizable yet slightly weird around the edges characters, and he puts them through some wonderfully silly paces as well as some heartbreaking ones. His prose is admirably restrained, conveying a great deal yet never sounding overwritten. But it's his characters that shine and sparkle like sequins in the spotlight."
--Jerry Wheeler, Out in Print

"A slew of bizarre stories, some hilarious, some heartrending, and almost all of them as original as an Ionesco play with a good dose of David Lynch trompe l'oeil thrown in. Today's gay literature needs more voices from Greenwell's South, and here's hoping Who the Hell is Rachel Wells? has called them out of the wilderness."
--Kyle Thomas Smith, Edge
