The Beaver Show

Crass, crazy, and compelling, this stripper's journey is wonderfully intriguing. Not for the faint of heart this sordid tale of stripping and finding one's way as a sex worker isn't for everyone but for those that brave it this is a wonderful read. "The Beaver Show" strings together stories about how Jacqueline, a lesbian Canadian, got her start stripping in Australia and eventually moved on to other countries increasing her skill set, knowledge, and customer base. The stories range from hilarious to disgusting to eye opening. Peppered throughout the stories are wonderful little drawings and stripper tips that even the most enterprising of sex workers may find useful. Wonderfully feminist and empowering, I enjoyed this book immensely. It reminded me a lot of Diablo Cody's memoir, "Candy Girl" and makes me want to read more memoirs of this kind!
