"The artistic journey is an ongoing process of discovering who you are, and I'm still searching. You may have been dealt an odd hand, but instead of walking away from the game, keep playing. Magical things can happen." -- CB

New book of Charles Busch screenplays

Die, Mommie, Die! and Psycho Beach Party: the screenplays of Charles Busch

Two eminently readable and highly entertaining screenplays, with a marvelous bonus. Charles provides commentary on the making of these two films and discusses what it’s like to be both behind the camera and to star as a leading lady.

Charles' first collection of plays is also available:

The Tale of the Allergist's Wife and Other Plays

Contains The Tale of the Allergist's Wife, Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, Psycho Beach party, The Lady in Question, Red Scare on Sunset.

While we're on the subject of books, if you haven't read Charles Busch's novel, Whores of Lost Atlantis, you are missing out. Chock full of quirky characters, surprising plot twists, hysterical circumstances, side-splitting zingers, and yes - sex, Armistead Maupin reportedly enjoys it annually.

Congratulations on a brilliant effort. I have become quite obsessed with 'A Very Serious Person'. I watch it almost everyday. (I know, why not everyday? Sometimes life keeps me too busy) I can relate to the film from a similar autobiographical perspective as well. I too, was a precocious boy very much like Gil in the movie (I even had the red hair). A curtsy to you, Charles Busch, and Carl Andress. I hope to see much more of you in this film genre and, hopefully, on stage. Again, congratulations and my warmest thanks.

Thank you for your lovely note. I'm so pleased that A Very Serious Person touched you so deeply. It was a very special project for all of us working on it. As you can imagine, it was somewhat autobiographical. I'd love to make another movie. It's a complicated venture to make happen but I'll keep trying. Thanks again.

Best wishes,
