Description


A Sprinkling of Stardust over the Outhouse is the long-awaited follow-up to Paul Brogan's highly successful first book, Was That a Name I Dropped? released in 2011.

Paul came out as gay when he was ten in the early 1960s and faced a number of obstacles for doing so. He approached them without losing sight of who he was, eventually winning over the naysayers who urged him to be someone other than himself.

A Sprinkling of Stardust is a true story that is rich in detail as it tells Paul's story with humor and heart as well as harsh and sometimes shockingly brutal reality.

In the 1980s, playing the starring role in a musical production of Peter Pan, Paul Brogan sang the song "Never Never Land." The lyrics "I have a place where dreams are born, and time is never planned. It's not on any chart. You must find it with your heart. Never Never Land" had a great deal of meaning to Paul. Frequently he found himself getting choked up as he sang them.

After coming out at the age of ten, Paul created his own Never Never Land. It represented a safe haven, a refuge where he could do and be himself. It was a place to which he escaped after being sexually abused, raped, and suffering a series of life-threatening health issues.

His latest book is not a sequel to his 2011 best-seller, Was That a Name I Dropped? Instead, it is the rest of the story told in the same frank and honest manner that earned him kudos for the first book.

It is funny, sexy, insightful, moving, and will have the viewer turning away in shock and horror in some instances. Ultimately, it is life.

Enthusiastic Response to Paul Brogan's Writing

Was That a Name I Dropped? is even more rare. It is a must-read, and incredible journey and the fastest and most enticing 532 pages I have enjoyed in years. (Tommy Lightfoot Garrett, Canyon News, June 19, 2011)

Paul has now written a top-flight memoir, which has the narrative flow of a Dickensian novel. (David Kaufman, celebrated New York author of Ridiculous The Theatrical Life and Times of Charles Ludlam 2002] and Doris Day: The Untold Story of the Girl Next Door 2008], May 30, 2011)

It was a nice mixture of personal tragedy and high-octane gossip, and of course we all love titillation." (Rex Reed, columnist, June 8, 2011)

I also HIGHLY recommend Was That a Name I Dropped? by Paul Brogan. Paul has known EVERYONE in Hollywood. It is an incredible memoir accounting an incredible journey (Richard Skipper; celebrated producer, performer, and writer; December 10, 2011)
