Through interviews with former patrons and performers, Don Paulson and Roger Simpson capture the joyful evenings where those on stage proclaimed to the gathered audiences, "Come out and be yourselves". Here are the lives of the female impersonators, the Prima Donnas and the Dames, singing ballads to the accompanying roar of the Garden's old theater pipe organ. It ties in so wonderfully with the political situation and other events in Seattle's history and reminds one of how much things have changed. I couldn't put it down until I'd finished.

The Garden of Allah was a mid-20th century gay cabaret that opened in 1946 in the basement of the Victorian-era Arlington Hotel in Seattle's Pioneer Square. It was Seattle's most popular gay cabaret in the late 1940s and 1950s and one of the first gay-owned gay bars in the United States. Prior to becoming a cabaret, the space had been a speakeasy, during Prohibition, and then a tavern.

Reviews:
  • Arryar
This book is fantastic and very readable. Between the ample pictures and the format of the book (past the introductory chapter) being in 2-6 page interview excerpts from truly interesting people, it is an easy book to either pick up and put down and to chip away at in little spurts, or to become totally engrossed with and tear all the way through. This is a wonderful recording of first hand accounts of one of the first openly gay owned and operated for other gay people drag cabarets in the country.
  • Nirad
Great insight into a little known chapter of Seattle’s gay history. My grandfather, a Seattle cop, remembers this place well. My grandmother recalls having a great time here and was a little envious of Jackie Starr who had better legs than she did!

I loved this book. The Garden was before my time, but I knew of the other places and had seen one mentioned performer. It ties in so wonderfully with the political situation and other events in Seattle's history and reminds one of how much things have changed. I couldn't put it down until I'd finished. I bought 2 more copies for gifts, and one of my friends who borrowed it, ordered his own copy.

Wonderful book, insightful comments. A very happy read.

What an amazing find this book was! The authors artfully unveil the little-known world of drag clubs in the Fourties - and let me tell you it's NOTHING like the drag world today. Full of artists who sang for themselves (no lip-sync here!) and took their art form very seriously, it really opens up your perspective on what it must have been like to be a gay person in that era. You get both a feel for the times and a perspective that makes you appreciate today.
Told as a series of short biographies of people and places of the day, it is very readable, accessible, and educational at the same time.
I highly recommend this book, and hope the authors are working on a sequel that covers the next era in Seattle's rich history!
