  1. Jason Pettus

    Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcenter I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP it is not being reprinted here illegally As regular readers know, I am spending the week finally making my way through a whole series of books I found only so so, some of which have been in my reading list for months as I ve instead cherry picked other titles from the always huge stack Take today s book, for example, David Henry Sterry s Master of Cer [...]

  2. Audacia Ray

    Full disclosure the author is a friend of mine.This is a 350 page book that I tore through in a weekend and I am a busy lady It s the kind of book that makes you miss your stop on the subway and emote right along with the characters are people characters when it s a memoir In this case I say yes being a stripper is all about being a character, especially if your role is Construction Guy or Prince Charming.The book has a solid dose of 1980s NYC coke driven sleaze, plus tender and slightly raunchy [...]

  3. Library Journal magazine

    Assitant Editor Anna Katterjohn could not resist this book s cover, er, its equally salacious content Sterry chronicles his adventures as a struggling comic after he is hired as the host of the popular all male strip show Chippendales in the early Eighties He than delivers on the promise of his title, and readers looking for sex, drugs, and New York style debauchery will find it in spades There is a tabloid level sleaziness inherent in the material, which Sterry utilizes for maximum entertainme [...]

  4. Kemble

    My favorite scene from the book involves a woman who asks one of the Chippendale dancers if she can snort a line of cocaine off his erection In that one moment, Sterry perfectly sums up this era in the timeline of America He had the ultimate front row seat in this fantasy world where women at least for a few hours were allowed to be as base as men It s a true story that makes Sex and the City look like an episode of Barney.

  5. Kim

    This is Sterry s second memoir, but you do not have to read Chicken to be able to follow this section of his life This book is a chapter in his adult life as an MC in the Studio 54 like atmosphere during the hey day of Chipendales N.Y Very insightful.

  6. Dustin Young

    Someone recommended this book to me, and I haven t been able to put it down It s interesting to see the dark side of the male stripping industry, and to learn about the mastermind behind the entire operation.

  7. Melissa

    The story didn t really move forward till 3 4 way through Also a lot of self loathing But it was funny and descriptions pulled me in Plus anything set in NYC in the 80s, I m sold.

  8. Alan

    Brilliant ride to the cocaine 80 s, down the slope of ripped muscle and punctured ass Sterry s pen is a master of ceremonies Great stuff.

  9. Ann

    Memoir of man who MCs at Chippendales and reveals the behind the scenes garbage that happens during the business Interesting.
