John Waters - You're Booked

We're very excited to announce that for season 5 of You're Booked we're jetting off to the USA for an entire series featuring our favourite American writers. And we're even more excited to start off in Baltimore at the home of the legendary author and auteur John Waters! John is the director of 18 films including the classics Pink Flamingos and Hairspray and the author of 10 books, the latest being Mr Know-It-All. We perused just a tiny section of his his vast 12,000 volume book collection and discussed shoplifting, porn parodies, and, scoop alert, John's first novel, which is currently being written.
