Candy Girl: A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper
At twenty-four, Diablo Cody decided there had to be more to life than typing copy at an ad agency. On a whim, she signed up for amateur night at a seedy Minneapolis strip club. She didn’t win a prize that night – but she discovered that stripping delivered a rush she had never experienced before.
In Candy Girl, she tells the captivating fish-out-of-water story of her year-long walk on the wild side. With insight and wit, she takes us on a behind-the-scenes tour of the industry, from quiet gentlemen’s clubs to multi-level sex palaces. Funny and fascinating, Candy Girl is a seductive treat.
