Critic Reviews

"Gorgeous, hugely talented, funny, charismatic, adorable, Chaney is a goddess and brings us joy." (Lorraine)

"Lawrence Chaney is the funniest queen by a country mile. She has delivered the laughs a locked down nation needed in abundance. But there's much more to Chaney than her quick wit. Her vulnerability is also part of her natural gift." (Vogue)

Loved it!

I wanted to order the book on Amazon, but shipping would’ve taken too long so I started to listen to it via Audible. As a fan, this book solidified my love for Lawrence Chaney. This book made me laugh from Lawrence’s quick, witty humor and made me tear up from listening to very emotional stories.
As a fan of Lawrence, of course I would recommend this! Also as a fan of Drag Race, this was a great listen. Lawrence was a great narrator for this book. I highly recommed this. Looking forward to buy the book as well.

So much more than expected

A surprisingly good read for the biography of a 24 year old. I laughed often and shed a few tears as the author describes the many challenges he has faced simply for being a unique and very special person. Also includes a great insight and advice for any aspiring drag artist.

Great book, suitable for anyone!

This was such a lovely book. It really made me smile hearing Lawrence speak their own words! They have such a natural charm and energy, I honestly could listen to them speak the phone book. Some funny moments and also touching ones too. A great overview of their life and career so far, drag race and advice for aspiring drag artists. However, the book is suitable for anyone!

Real and sincere with a gentle lilt.

Beautiful in its realness and honesty. Undoubtedly a support for young people who are concerned about coming out and being their authentic selves. Articulate in writing and delivery this is a must for all Lawrence Chaney fans and is another step closer to world domination. Loved it!! 🌈

All I can say is Wow

Loved Lawrence Chaney on drag race and felt he was a worthy winner. Im immersing myself in all things Rupaul at present so this seemed the perfect book and it didn’t disappoint. Well even more back stage gossip would have been welcome but then when would that ever not be true.

fun story but restrained

the book was really fun. the performance is good and at times can feel really energetic and upbeat although they seem to be very restrained in what the hell are able to tell this story which can lead to it sounded quite awkward and stunted.
as for the story itself it's rather interesting but there's nothing new to them or at least not much of it it's just a recount of the story which they had on the TV show plus a few additions here and there but the thing substantial.
personally I would prefer to fit within more of a conversational style rather than in the direct Reading that the book is in.
would I recommend this I would recommend this if you just know about Lawrence and don't know a lot about them or use wants a fun few hours to help pass away the time

Love this story and a ripping listen

What a joy listening to Lawrence narrating this gem. Really sweet, self deprecating and insightful. So much insight for such a young queen. Loved it.
