Publisher's Description

Marie Baronnet compiles a skilful and sincere portrait of the forgotten entrepreneurs of the American Dream, the women who have conquered their bodies and independence, their sex and commodification. Through quotes and fabulous images, the quest takes her from strip joints to burlesque theatres, seeking encounters with “Legends” who have lived the candour and decadence of a bygone golden age. With names like Eartha Quake, Bambi Jones, Isis Starr, Velvet Ice, Val Valentine, Lovey Goldmine and Dixie Evans, these quintessential showgirls versed in the art of the strip tease herald from Las Vegas and beyond, their lustre and fiery spirit undiminished by age.
