Apparently, there are some things even John Waters is unwilling to do.
Waters became known — although some might say “notorious” — in the 1970s for his transgressive cult films, including “Pink Flamingos” and “Female Trouble,” that pushed the boundaries of good behavior and good taste, with outrageous characters performing unspeakable acts.
However, the man who happily describes himself as the “Sultan of Sleaze” isn’t about to go traipsing around the country during a pandemic, even if he has a new book to sell.
So Waters will be taking part in a special event via Zoom with Magic City Books to talk about his latest creation, “Mr. Know-It-All: The Tarnished Wisdom of a Filth Elder.”
