Gypsy Rose Lee was one of the most famous strippers of all time. It was her burlesque act which earned her legendary status. She brought a sharp sense of humor into her act. She became as famous for her onstage wit, as for her striping style. She was spotted by H.K. Minsky, who featured her in his infamous New York club, from there to theatre, 12 films, and eventually her own television show. She wrote two mystery novels, and an autobiography, which was a bestseller. The walls of her Los Angeles home were adorned with pictures by Joan MirĂ³, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Max Ernst and Dorothea Tanning, all of which were reportedly gifts to her by the artists themselves.

Description: Hard bound with dust jacket. INSCRIBED by Gypsy Rose Lee. Some edge wear. Dust jacket shows some wear, with chipping to spine edges and corners, otherwise good.
