Of Drag Kings and the Wheel of Fate

by Susan Smith

Dr. Rosalind Olchawski is an expert on Shakespeare, Nineteenth century poetry, and being the best friend you’ve ever had. She’s been described so often as warm, Rosalind has come to think of herself as a sweater or a pair of mittens.

One night on a blind date at a drag club in downtown Buffalo, Rosalind is mesmerized by the performance of the drag king Taryn. Can a grown woman go mad over a girl who looks like a boy? One night of adventure threatens to tear down everything Rosalind has come to believe about herself.

Of Drag Kings & the Wheel of Fate is a novel about history, sex, drag, paganism, death, and the formation of family. Using an ancient myth reset in the queer community in Buffalo, New York, Smith explores gender fluidity, sexual diversity, and the deeper questions of love and identity that make us who we are.
