Ask Dr. Mueller captures the glamour and grittiness of Cookie Mueller's life and times. Here are previously unpublished stories - wacky as they are
enlightening - along with favorites from Walking Through Clear Water in a Pool Painted Black and other publications. Also, the best of Cookie's art columns from Details magazine, and the funniest of her advice columns from the East Village Eye, on everything from homeopathic medicine to how to cut your cocaine with a healthy substance. This collection is as much an autobiography as it is a map of downtown New York in the early '805--that moment before Bright Lights, Big City, before the art world exploded, before New York changed into a yuppie metropolis, while it still had a glimmer of bohemian life.

"Cookie Mueller was a writer, a mother, an outlaw, an actress, a fashion designer, a go-go dancer, a witch-doctor, an art-hag and above all, a goddess. ... It was much later in life that Irealized Cookie's biggest talent was her writing. Even the worst experiences in her lite were neutralized by retelling them in print as tall tales; she could become a sort of fractured but hilarious Uncle Remus for the brave but culturally wounded."

From the Introduction by John Waters
