by The Lady Chablis (Author), Theodore Bouloukos (Author), Robin Bowman (Photographer), John Berenft (Introduction) & 1 more. I'm a big fan of the book and movie 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil'. When I found out Lady Chablis had a book naturally I had to have it. I am not disappointed. I'm a bit over half way through the book and struggle to put it down. Hiding My Candy is extremely entertaining and informative. However, I must add, to the avid book worm it might be somewhat difficult to read.

That's typical of the savvy, self-promoting Grand Empress of Savannah: She bills herself as a performance artist rather than as a drag queen. Controlling perceptions of herself (and generally getting her way) is a top priority for the willful Chablis. Labels having always been an issue, she prefers to name herself. Chablis's talent emerged early; she started performing in drag at age 14. Her defiant embrace of femininity earned beatings.

Other authors: Theodore Bouloukos. Laugh-out-loud funny, deeply touching, and just as entertaining as The Lady Chablis in person, Hiding My Candy is one dessert listeners will find absolutely irresistible. Spending a couple hours in the company of The Lady Chablis was entertaining, but the book is more about her flamboyant lifestyle than the underlying gender identity issues. Also worth noting is that the book is about 20 years old, and was most likely written mainly for its pot-boiling potential. The Doll has not had an easy or particularly prosperous existence, at least up to the time of this publication.

The personal story of the famous drag queen from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil describes an abuse-marked childhood, character development, rise to stardom, and secrets of survival.

I'm a big fan of the book and movie 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil'. When I found out Lady Chablis had a book naturally I had to have it.
I am not disappointed. I'm a bit over half way through the book and struggle to put it down. Hiding My Candy is extremely entertaining and informative. However, I must add, to the avid book worm it might be somewhat difficult to read. The book is written in what I would call southern slang, and deliciously so. The language makes it real, or should I say T. Enjoy my friends

The book arrived quickly and was a good read. Pretty funny in spots. I wasn't expecting a masterpiece - got something entertaining. My husband and I met her on a cruise we took and stopped in port for the day. The movie was shown onboard the ship - Midnight in The Garden of Good and Evil and so I had some history with the author.

I loaned out my original copy and never got it back. This is the exact one that I loaned and it's not going anywhere.

Since "The Lady" passed away this last year, I wanted a copy of this book. The Lady played her(him)self in the movie, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. A very frank, funny, and soft person, the Lady was.

Too bad it was abridged. This was a fun book, I laughed throughout it. But it was too short and I'm afraid I am sorry I didn't get the unabridged because it really was a fun book.

I just joined the book club my office has, and this was my first book I read for it. This is the memoir of the Lady Chalbis aka Brenda Knox. I'd never heard of her, but apparently she featured prominently in the book/movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. I've never read the book but i vaguely remember my dad renting the movie and it being boring and me wandering away or falling asleep, back when i was a kid. I hated the writing style. She refers to herself in the third person a lot, and she has a glossary of her slang at the back of the book. I don't think we would get along if I knew her. However, I admire her honesty in this book. She doesn't leave anything out, not even things like stealing, prostitution or being a drug addict. But more than that, i admire her bravery. My favorite part of the book is the beginning, when she talks about growing up in a small town in Florida. She was born a little boy, but remained true to herself, even through hardship. And this is back in time. This would be hard even now, but back then, I can't imagine. This is a woman who's been true to herself, and made it work. She's made the decision to live her life the way she felt, including taking hormone shots for breasts, but not going for the full operation. She loves whomever she loves, and doesn't care about convention. I really respect that. It was hard to get through this book because of the way it was written; it was short but felt really long and dragged a bit; but the message it meant to convey did make it worth it. This was also an excellent book to be reading right as Pride comes upon us!

After watching ''Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" I wanted to read this book. The photos are amazing and Lady Chablis is definitely one of a kind! Shed a lot of ''light'' on being transgender. It's well-written too! I enjoyed it.
An insightful look into the life of a unique person. I found it very thoughtful and fun to read. The book is timeless in it's message. The opening reference's to the movie (now 20 years old)'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" is the only "dated" thing about the story. Her attitude for life and personal stories are fantastic. She is fearless in discussing her life.
