In Mr. Know-It-All, the curtain is pulled back and Waters’ life, a multi-decade exercise in adaptability, perseverance and ceaseless hustle, is revealed. The essays are hyper-driven with the caloric burn of nervous energy. Full of insight and scrappy, hard-earned smarts. It's entertaining and delightful. Some of the chapters are a little crazy, but I loved them all. I'm from Baltimore, so I enjoyed reading his references to places I have been or heard of. Fans and fellow Filth Elders should definitely give this one a try!

Narrated by John Waters. like reading a description of a Waters film is nothing like seeing it on the screen, liste.
