  •     Irish-born comedian Graham Norton in this very small book gives us his pick of his favorite gay icons. Each little biography includes a picture of the favorite star, drag queen, singer, actor or performer. I enjoyed several of his picks like k.d.lang, Divine, Grace Jones, Alain Delon, Madonna, etc. I highly disagreed with his picks of Jeffrey Dahmer, Francis Farmer, Roger Moore, and Liberace. Some of his picks are meant to be controversial, and they are. This is just one of a series of books put out about 20th Century Icons. Graham's royalties from this book go the Terrance Higgins Trust, the UK's leading HIV and AIDS Charity. A good cause. I found this book enjoyable, especially the gay icons that I personally chose. An interesting little book!
  •     I purchased this book as a RAOK (Random Act of Kindness) for Bookcrossers. The book was smaller than expected. Both in size and page wise. But it was interesting none the less. It doesn't have many words as it is mostly pictures.
