Based on her experiences as a stripper in a city she calls Laurelton - a southeastern American city renowned for its strip clubs - anthropologist Katherine Frank provides a fascinating insider's account of the personal and cultural fantasies motivating heterosexual, male strip club 'regulars'.

Katherine Frank's most recent biography, "A Passage to Egypt: The Life of Lucie Duff Gordon", earned a rave front-page review in the "New York Times Book Review". Frank is also the author of "A Voyager Out", a life of Mary Kingsley, & "A Chainless Soul", a life of Emily Bronte, which was hailed by New York Daily News. Her work on "Indira" involved six years of extensive travel & research.
