Divine“Divine Intervention” is the latest book — a memoir about my time living in a shabby downtown apartment building where I met a group of eccentric and extraordinary friends including Glenn Milstead (the soon-to-be-famous Divine), designer Van Smith, director John Waters and a host of actors and students who provided fun and adventures as well as support for my freedom and growth.
