From Drags to Riches
The Untold Story of Charles Pierce
A Memoir by John Wallraff
(2002) Harrington Park Press - 280 pp. with index. Includes 14-page photo section

About The Book:


Learn how Charles Pierce achieved stardom and became one of the most famous female impersonators of all time!

Charles Pierce (1926--1999) was an internationally known and highly successful female impersonator, known for his vivid portrayals of Bette Davis, Katherine Hepburn, and Mae West. This book offers a candid look at a career that spanned over fifty years--from his humble start at the Pasadena Playhouse, to his sold-out shows in San Francisco.

From Drags to Riches provides a rich and colorful history of Charles Pierce. In this insightful and moving volume, Pierce?s friend John Wallraff offers valuable insights about the little-known man behind the makeup and captures the essence of what drag stardom is really like.

This informative, imaginative, and sexually provocative book contains:

  • stories of how famous Hollywood icons shaped Charles Pierce?s life and his act
  • Pierce?s history, from his humble beginnings at the Pasadena Playhouse to his sold-out shows in San Francisco and beyond
  • a look at Pierce?s private life
  • an examination of the price of fame--how successes and failures shape any performer

Using the words of Charles Pierce himself, adding a dash of humor, mixing in fascinating insights, and sprinkling in juicy stories of love, lust, and sex, this book is a melting pot of information about a well-loved but sometimes misunderstood man.

?I am not a drag queen! I am a Male Actress--a Master and Mistress of Disguise!?
--Charles Pierce
