After nearly a lifetime spent in fashion, author and fashion insider Simon Doonan is ready to let you in on a little secret- his peers in this multibillion-dollar industry are just as nutty as the denizens of your local loony bin. In The Asylum , an unabashedly hilarious collection of autobiographical essays, Doonan, the creative ambassador for Barneys New York, tells the real-life stories of glamorous madness and stylish insanity. With his gimlet eye for the absurd and a love for eccentricity, Doonan's personal and professional stories never fail to entertain. 'The David Sedaris of the style universe' ( The Boston Globe ) gives us the scoop on the kooky, cutthroat - but always fabulous - fashion world and proves himself one of the sharpest humourist writing today. 'Simon Doonan is one funny gay nugget.' Chelsea Handler 'The fashion world is - in a word - hysterical! Simon Doonan is the one man who sees it and tells it like it (absurdly) is.' Marc Jacobs 'Simon Doonan is the Bon Qui Qui of fashion - stirring things up and reminding us to keep a sense of humor.' Alexander Wang 'In The Asylum, Simon Doonan's comedic genius explodes out of highbrow shoe boxes.' Leandra Medine, author and blogger ( Man Repeller )
