You’ve binged on P-Valley and Beyond the Pole but now you want to hear about the real life of a stripper? I was a Stripper Librarian is the perfect book for you.
The author goes beyond the scenes and introduces us to many of her stripper friends. While some focus on the usual stripper tales of lazy pimp boyfriends and drug abuse, most are more complex than that.
It also is a cautionary tale about deciding on a college school and major. The author states she got into stripping to pay her expenses during the second year of her master’s program in Information (the new name for Library Science). Her student loans after graduation are $80,000. Her annual salary perhaps a third of that. As someone with over $120,000 in loans, I can relate. This topic has also been discussed in major magazines recently making this truly relevant right now.
Again, if you want to learn more about stripping or being a librarian, I was a Stripper Librarian is the perfect book for you. Note this is not a salacious tell-all. Still, it’s an entertaining read. 4 stars!
Thanks to author and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
