Fascinating glimpse into the life of Cookie Mueller and the creative milieu from which she sprang. That last part needs clarification: Prior to codification of punk rock culture, proto-punks, such as Baltimore's Dreamland rich and bizarre cast of characters, wrote their own rules -- whether in Baltimore, Provincetown or NYC. One overriding aesthetic: Offend the boring middle class. Mueller's anarchic life reveals middle class upbringing, brief interaction with the Manson Family, bohemian life in John Waters' world, goddess of Village underground No-Wave scene, dope peddler extraordinaire WHILE writing "Ask Dr. Mueller" for the East Village Eye, mother to a son, wife to an AIDS victim and victim herself of AIDS, leading to her death in 1989. While the focus remains on Mueller, told through "Edie"-styled oral-anecdotal-biography, the scenery along the way provides a gripping account of a life constantly on the edge -- bohemia incarnate.
