The first, authorized biographical tribute to Charles Pierce, the foremost "male actress" of the 20th Century. His send ups of icons Bette Davis, Katharine Hepburn and Joan Crawford made him famous. Pierce also appeared in the film "Torch Song Trilogy" and on TV. Author Kirk Frederick captures the essence of Pierce in a thoroughly entertaining, revealing, and funny biographical tribute as only someone who knew him on and off the stage could. Foreword by Armistead Maupin.
