Item Details

Diablo Cody was 24 when she decided there had to be more to life than typing ad copy. On a whim, she signed up for amateur night at Minneapolis's seedy Skyway Lounge. She didn't win a prize, but she discovered that stripping delivered a rush she had never experienced before. While she didn't fit the ordinary profile of a stripper--she had a supportive boyfriend, was equal parts brainpower and beauty, was from a good family, and was out to do a little soul searching--she soon immersed herself in this enticing life full-time. Here she tells the fish-out-of-water story of her yearlong walk on the wild side, giving readers a behind-the-scenes look at this industry through a writer's keen eye, from quiet gentlemen's clubs to multi-level sex palaces, with wry observations along the way.--From publisher description.
