Summary, etc.:
"Lili St. Cyr was, in the words of legendary reporter Mike Wallace, the "highest paid stripteaser in America." Lili led an incredible life--six marriages alongside great fame and money. Lili was named one of the world's ten most beautiful women alongside Ava Gardner and Brigitte Bardot. Yet she lost it all, becoming a recluse in her final decades. This book reveals that behind the g-strings and the pasties stood a "complicated, eccentric, brilliant" woman, much loved and little understood."-- Provided by publisher.
