Behind the Burly Q Book
Blaze Starr, Tempest Storm, Lili St. Cyr they are all here together with Abbott and Costello and many others who worked and lived in burlesque during the Golden Age. Zemeckis travels to Kitty West post-Katrina, down to Florida to interview convicted money launderer Al Baker, Jr. to tell their stories for the first time. The strippers of yesteryear are the inspiration for Dita Von Teese and others in the neo-burlesque movement of today. The book has already garnered rave reviews from Kirkus and Publisher’s Weekly.
