A revelatory look at the working conditions on the Minneapolis strip club scene, and the factors that drew an educated, stable feminist into its intoxicating blur. Cody is a natural at wry humor and clever turns of phrase. And since she won an Oscar (Best Original Screenplay for "Juno"), you don't have to read her book furtively.
When a young, college-educated woman with a perfectly respectable if uninspiring office job in Minneapolis decides, on a whim, to enter the "amateur night" contest at a local strip club, it unexpectedly leads to a year of awkward, amusing, strange and empowering experiences in gentlemen's clubs, from the seedy to the high-end. Largely fluff, this proved a good fit for my vacation reading.
A different perspective of the lifestyle of a stripper. Interesting in that sense.
As any true Minnesotan would say, "Now, THAT's interesting!" This probably won't make your book club list, but it is undeniably witty and well-written. Diablo Cody is a gifted writer and the book gives you great insights into some of the more down-and-dirty places of Minneapolis. You know you shouldn?t look, but it?s irresistible. No wonder the woman won an Academy Award. If you aren?t easily shocked or offended, this book is a great read.
surprisingly dirty, but interesting. i never knew exactly what stippers do...
i thought it would be a story of degradation and regret, but instead it was a pro-stripper book. i was surprised but couldn't put it down.
