Lovecraft actually writes a coherent plot-driven story here. An expedition to Antartica discovers and ancient civilization. Everyone dies or goes crazy. It builds intensity, scares you when it should, and exposes you to an easily digestible version of the Lovecraft mythology.
It's the completely compelling and frequently disturbing life story of Yvette Paris, a woman who tried to bring back old school style burlesque to New York City's strip clubs in the randy, randy 80s. She was years ahead of her time, and while reading this book I couldn't help but wonder what she thinks of the current burlesque revival. The best parts of the book detail the hierarchy of exotic dancers and Yvette's progression from go-go dancer to to booth girl to burlesque star. Yvette has to suffer for her art, and her descriptions of her fellow dancers and their customers will make your jaw drop. One thing about Yvette Paris--she tries really, really hard to remain open minded, but she still manages to say the most insane things. For example, her thoughts on lesbian co-workers: "I'm friends with many lesbians. Contrary to popular belief, they do not try to rape you." Thanks for the clarification, Yvette! She's also a master of understatement, and effortlessly shrugs off unspeakably horrible things that happen to her throughout the book. If you liked Gypsy or the burlesque chapters in My Face for the World To See, you'll probably enjoy this.
