Review quote

"This is a COOL, CRAZY, AND VERY ENTERTAINING deep dive into a taboo topic from a pair of pop culture scholars with an appreciation for the overlooked, offbeat, and often dark lore of show business. If I dropped dead reading The Show Won't Go On, I'd have died doing what I loved." --Legs McNeil, coauthor of Please Kill Me
