9781457517365: A Short Jew in the Body of a Tall Wasp: (A Gay Melodrama in Thirteen Acts)

Mark Okun's new book is a delightful and entertaining read that captures the heady high spirits of both the psychedelic 60's and the insane disco 70's. From this celebrated hairdresser to the stars cum "beautiful disco fag." Mark has plenty of outrageous stories of the NYC glitter high life in all its lost innocent glory back in the days when anything truly would go...a brilliant social history/memoir from a privileged outsider-insider renegade (also a Nice Jewish Boy!).

~ Gary Lucas, World-Renowned Guitar Player
This is a wonderful, honest, and touching, often funny and sometimes heartbreaking account of the struggles of a man to find himself and where he fits in life. As a tall, blond, blue-eyed, gay man adopted and raised by loving, dark, small Jewish parents, he decribes his genes being at war with his upbringing. Mr. Okun does not pull his punches about his friends who died of AIDS or how emotionally barren and spiritually dead his life of drugs, alcohol, and partying made him feel. In his commitment to life and the depth of his love for his adoptive parents, his grandmother, his friends, and his long-time companion John, he finally finds happiness and contentment. A beautiful story!

~ Janine Brookner, Ex-CIA Agent/Author, "Lifting the Veil of Secrecy"
Mark Okun's life is a culture clash - a compelling, can't-believe-it's-true-tale powered by drama, danger, and ultimately, love.

~Wendy Shanker. Author of "Are You My Guru? How Medicine, Meditation & Madonna Saved My Life"
