Drag King Dreams is the story of Max Rabinowitz, a butch lesbian bartender at an East Village club where drag kings, dykes dressed as men, perform. A veteran of the women's and gay movement of the past 30 years, Max's mid-life crisis hits in the midst of the post-9/11 world. Max is lonely and uncertain about her future--fearful in fact of America's future with its War on Terror and War in Iraq--with only a core group of friends to turn to for reassurance. Max is shaken from her crisis, however, by the news that her friend Vickie, a transvestite, has been found murdered on her way home late one night. As the community of cross-dressers, drag queens, lesbian and gay men, and "genderqueers" of all kinds stand up together in the face of this tragedy, Max taps into the activist spirit she thought had long disappeared and for the first time in years discovers hope for her future.… (més)

The most recent novel by the author of 'Stone Butch Blues' is a nuanced exploration of (trans)identities in a complex cultural, political and technological landscape. Feinberg challenges the reader to conceptualize the characters in the novel without revealing "all" much the way our own, multi-faceted, real identities and lives play out on a daily basis. Excellent work to further queer the representations of the queer self/body/life. ( )

Blah, blah and more blah. If you were expecting anything like Stone Butch Blues, lose those expectations. I found the characters disappointing, the novel undeveloped and rushed. ( )
