Who wants to be that?
When Kelly Cutrones first book, If You Haveto Cry, Go Outside, was first published, youngpeople flocked to this new voice—finally,someone was telling it like it is, in languagethey spoke. It quickly became a New YorkTimes bestseller, and fashion publicist KellyCutrone became more than a personality,she became a beloved guru, mentor, andfairy godmother.
Now shes back with another no-holds-barredbook to awaken our souls and kick our assesinto gear. With Normal Gets You Nowhere,she invites us to get our freak on. History isfull of successful, world-changing people whodid not fit in. Think Nelson Mandela, Joanof Arc, Eleanor Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart,John Lennon, and Rosa Parks. Instead ofchanging themselves to accommodate thestatus quo or what others thought they shouldbe, these people hung a light on their differences—and changed humanity in the process.
“I know you dont feel normal, so why areyou trying to act it and prove to everyone youare?” Cutrone says. So much of what we sayor dont say, and what we do or dont do, isdictated by what others have told us, or whatpeople may think of us. This is not how weshould be living, by measuring ourselvesagainst the mundane.
An invitation to rethink who you are, what youvalue, and what you want from life, NormalGets You Nowhere goes beyond how to reinventyourself and create your own brand, andinvestigates what it means to live in this worldas a tuned-in, caring individual with a passionfor making a difference. Theres already anarmy of super talented uberfreaks changingthe world-isnt it time you joined them?
