A witty, erotic and sexually explicit memoir about geeky English girl turned hard-nosed New York stripper. 'Sex and the City' meets 'Belle de Jour' - where the only thing that matters is how goddamned hot you are...
'If you wanna be a dancer in Flash Dancers,' says Bambi, eyeing me critically and punctuating the end of her sentence with a sharp snap of her hot-pink gum, 'you're gonna need a lot of help.'
With a first-class degree from Cambridge, Mimi had the world at her feet. But in following her dreams of becoming a respected writer in New York, Mimi found herself jobless, desperate and with serious visa problems.
With no one to turn to, Mimi did the only thing possible -- she auditioned as a stripper at Flash Dancers. With the aid of a day-glo tan, a Brazilian wax, some clear plastic heels and a polyester slut dress, the goofy, geeky Cambridge girl became tough dancer-girl Mimi. Her wise-cracking, explosive and sexy adventures of life as a Manhattan stripper are told with wit and a host of larger-than-life characters including Mr High Ranking UN official, Mafia Joe, Eton the bourgeois boyfriend and Bambi.
Based on her in-your-face blog Mimi in New York, Mimi's story of her unravelling life is glamorous, seedy and shocking in equal parts.
