A riotous tale of pop culture, backstage drama and showbiz gossip from co-producer of RuPaul#&39;s Drag Race and award-winning director Fenton Bailey

World of Wonder is the iconic Hollywood-based production company behind RuPaul#&39;s Drag Race as well as other ballsy originals including The Eyes of Tammy Faye, Party Monster, Inside Deep Throat and Monica in Black and White.

The production company, founded in 1991 by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, has been making must-see television for three decades, giving a voice to
marginalized communities and society#&39;s oddballs, all while entertaining audiences with its signature anarchic sense of humor.

Written by co-founder and Emmy award-winning filmmaker Fenton Bailey, this book tracks World of Wonder#&39;s triumphs and struggles, from the pair#&39;s humble beginnings as aspiring pop stars in #&39;80s New York to managing #&39;Supermodel of the World#&39; RuPaul.

Packed full of insider gossip featuring a star-studded litany of LGBTQ+ icons such as James St Jam
