Behind-the-scenes erotic novel set in the declining days of stag shows, vaudeville houses, burlesques and the women who stripped for the men who came there to watch. For women who aspired to be actresses and performers, stripping was a one-way ticket to nowhere. To survive they had to expose their bodies and bestow their favors on the seediest of men. And they worked for the only men who would own a strip joint, the mob. Every day these desperate women lived in fear of mob violence or arrest by the long arm of the the law, while they snatched what love they could in the arms of men who used them only to satisfy their darkest perversions.
This searing novel is a bird's eye view into the dressing room and into the bedrooms of these lost, love-hungry women and their men. A fascinating, steamy read.
