It’s not too often I read an entire book in one day. But “My Trip Down the Pink Carpet,” a memoir by actor Leslie Jordan, is that good. I was expecting a mindless, entertaining read – a welcome break from the serious books I have been reading lately. The Pink Carpet was indeed entertaining – I laughed out loud several times. But it also addresses serious issues in meaningful ways including struggling with addictions, coming out, homophobia, and religion. The book is a good read with important messages – I’d recommend it.
