REVIEW
This is one of a kind story about a man who became Tupperware's top seller, not one year but four years.  He id it in an unconventual way.  He dressed in drag.
Mr. Ferrell is an actor and an entertainer.  He has been on various TV shows, one being Frasier.   His alter ego, Dee W. Ieye has turned him into a legend in the Tupperware world.
Mr. Ferrell had a fund raiser to get ready for, so he dreamed up Dee.  He was asked several times if he wanted to sell Tupperware and he was adamant that he didn't want to.  He eventually tried it and hasn't been sorry since.
Dee and Kevin weren't sure how everyone would react to such a turn out at their first Tupperware party
Since then they have grown and matured.
They are opposites.  Dee is loud and outgoing while Kevin is quiet and rather reserved. Perhaps this is a way for Kevin to express himself.
I found the book was ok.  It's not something I would read again.  I also wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It tells two stories, one of Kevin and one of Dee.  They are the same person and yet they aren't.  That is how I see it.  It's a person who goes into a different way of dressing and acting.  To me, they are 2 in 1.
Kevin includes a lot of information about his life before and after Dee.  There were some repeats of different phrases and wordings.  It's a book that some people may find offensive.    I wonder how Tupperware felt about a drag queen selling their product. I know that this is a touchy subject to some people.  To some this may not be humorous. I just feel that there might be a better way to pay the rent than to become a drag queen selling Tupperware.
I was given a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Kevin Farrell for my view of the book.  No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 3 STARS.
