Life's A Drag (Paperback)Janie Millman (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
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 such a lovely and original, warm-hearted book and would make such a great film.”
