    In conversation with Jason Freeman

    John Waters’s transgressive movies include Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, Cry-Baby, Serial Mom, and Cecil B. Demented. He is also the author of Shock Value, Crackpot, Role Models, Make Trouble, and 2014’s Carsick, in which—armed with his trademark loud suits, wit, and pencil-thin mustache—Waters mingled with America’s denizens as he hitchhiked to the West Coast. In his new book, the “Pope of Trash” offers lessons on failing upward, developing wide-ranging cultural and sartorial tastes, loving without emotional peril, and cheating death itself.
