Cookie Mueller (1949-1989) was a firecracker, a cult figure, a wild child, a writer, a go-go dancer, a mother and a queer icon. A child of suburban 1950s Maryland, she made her name first as an actress in the films of John Waters, and then as an art critic and columnist, a writer of hilarious stories and a maven of New York’s downtown art world. Edgewise, by Berlin-based actress and writer Chloé Griffin, tells the story of Cookie’s life through an oral history composed of more than 80 interviews with the people who knew her.
