Abstract:

Holmes spent his life on the periphery wanting just one thing: to get inside. Growing up, he was the artsy kid in the sporty family. At his high school and Catholic college, he was the closeted gay kid surrounded by crush-worthy straight guys. In his twenties he accidentally became an MTV VJ overnight. Here Holmes tells the painful and painfully hilarious tales of an outsider desperate to get in, of a misfit constantly changing shape, of a guy who finally learns to accept himself-- structured around a mix of hits and deep cuts from the '80s, '90s, and '00s. Adapted from back cover.
