Frank Moore was an American performance artist, shaman, poet, essayist, painter, musician and Internet/television personality who experimented in art, performance, ritual, and shamanistic teaching since the late 1960s. His work is being archived at the Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley. Two of his oil paintings are part of the permanent collection at BAMPFA. A collection of his work is being archived at Performistanbul in Istanbul, Turkey.

In 1997, Frank Moore was contacted by Russell Shuttleworth, a then University of California, Berkeley graduate student, working on his doctoral dissertation. The thesis was a research study to help understand how men with moderate to severe cerebral palsy experience and interpret their search for intimacy and sexual relationships in the face of significant social and cultural barriers, or as Frank called it, “The Sexual Practices of Bay Area Men with Cerebral Palsy.” He wanted to interview Frank for this thesis. That interview quickly segued into 12 years of Russell interviewing Frank about Frank's life. Meanwhile, Frank encouraged Russell to live his dreams, which resulted in the discovery of Russell’s alter-ego Dr. Gruve, who dj'd a show on Frank’s LUVeR internet radio station, and played the harmonica in Frank's Cherotic All-Star Band. They did 88 interviews in all, even continuing via Skype when Russell moved to Australia to teach there. Russell is now a Medical Anthropologist PhD and a member of the faculty at Deakin University in Geelong, Victoria Australia.

Inside this book are the full transcripts of these interviews.
