Lily Burana accepts a marriage proposal - but first decides to strip her way from Florida to Alaska before settling down. An eighteen-year-old dropout when she first entered the world of exotic dancing, Lily, now a successful journalist, looks at stripping with a writer's perspective, open to the paradoxes and challenges that face exotic dancers. She takes the stage name of Barbie Faust and strips her way across the country. Her funny but hard-edged memoir describes funky clubs and off-beat characters, the exhilaration that overtakes a dancer on stage - and the darker realities that assail her when she's out of the spotlight.
