American diva

extraordinary unruly fabulous
Deborah Paredez
Book - 2024

"What does it mean to be a 'diva'? A shifting, increasingly loaded term, it has been used to both deride and celebrate charismatic and unapologetically fierce performers like Aretha Franklin, Divine, and the women of Labelle. In this brilliant, powerful blend of incisive cirticism and electric memoir, Deborah Paredez- scholar, cultural critic, and lifelong diva devotee- unravels our enduring fascination with these icons and explores how divas have challenged American ideas about feminism, performance, and freedom."--Dust jacket.
