The touching, hilarious memoir of legendary stripper Gypsy Rose Lee reveals her childhood trouping across 1920s America as the rear end of a cow in vaudeville. Her rise to stardom as The Queen of Burlesque in 1930s New York occurred when gin came in bathtubs, gangsters were celebrities and Walter Winchell was king.
Filled with an outrageous cast of characters, including Broadway's funny girl, Fanny Brice, who taught Gypsy how to be a star; gangster Waxy Gordon, who fixed her teeth; and her indomitable mother, Rose, who lived by her own version of the Golden Rule: " Do unto others... before they do you."
From the Publisher:
Gypsy Rose Lee was an American original -- a woman who transformed the striptease into an art form and bewitched audiences around the world. This colorful autobiography follows Gypsy from her childhood in a ragtag vaudeville troupe to her glittering career as the queen of burlesque. Readers meet Gypsy's indomitable mother, who launched her onto the stage at age four, as well as Florenz Ziegfeld, Fanny Brice, and other flamboyant personalities. As the subject of a Broadway musical, a movie, and a TV movie, Gypsy Rose Lee is a part of America's cultural landscape.
