Biography of renowned striptease artist Lili St. Cyr. As biographies go, it's a little light on the who's and why's, but is valuable as one of the few books on the famous (or infamous depending on your point of view) Ms. St. Cyr. Also has a lot of useful information about the history of burlesque theater and striptease. It's a good starting point, but it will probably (and hopefully [because St. Cyr is worthy of more attention, not because of any drawbacks to the book]) be eclipsed as the definitive biography of this forgotten figure.
