9780199754335: Stripping Gypsy: The Life of Gypsy Rose Lee
Review:

full of fascinating details ( Rochdale Observer)

"...careful and candid...Frankel's critical distance does nothing to detract from just how extraordinary Louise Hovick - the name Gypsy was born with - really was. From her beginnings in burlesque in the 1930s to her death in 1970 when she had become a brand as well as a legend, Gypsy received more media coverage than almost any other woman." -Times Literary Supplement

From the Publisher:

Hailed as an "endlessly fascinating biography of an extraordinary woman" ( Daily Express) and "a page turner" ( Independent), Noralee Frankel's lively biography illuminates the fascinating career of Gypsy Rose Lee, a woman who created and recreated her own identity to fit changing times. Placing the famed stripper's life in a refreshing new light, Frankel reveals that though Lee was not above using her femininity to full advantage, she aspired to much more than admiration for her physical beauty. Indeed, those who know Lee only from the beloved musical and film Gypsy!—which celebrates her unconventional rise to stardom—will be surprised to discover a woman who was not only a sex object, but also a best-selling writer, artist, political activist, and union leader. In addition to her highly successful strip-tease act and film career, Lee published two popular mystery novels and a memoir, wrote two plays, showed her original artwork in famed Modern Art-impresario Peggy Guggenheim's gallery, and gained notoriety for her participation in liberal politics.

Descripción Oxford University Press, 2010. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "It is simply impossible to read [this] book and not fall in love with Gypsy's tenacity, wit and confounding, beguiling, oh-so-American mix of self-mythology and self-awareness." -- Washington Post"The first truly scholarly biography of Gypsy Rose Lee. And in the same way that much of today's neo-burlesque phenomenon is fueled by feminist underpinnings, so too does Frankel, in this exhaustively researched work, reveal the forward-thinking politics of this burlesque pioneer." -- Bust Magazine"Frankel has done a commendable job sorting through the myths, embellishments, and falsehoods that Lee and the show-business publicity mill spread throughout the years. Her book reveals Lee's significance to the history of popular culture.She does an excellent job of situating Lee within the culture of show business in the 1930s and 1940s." -- Reviews in American History.
