Strip: A Novel
Kristen was 19 and in danger of spending her days in a backwater town, flipping burgers until "Mr. Good-Enough" came along. However, what she lacked in money and connections, she made up for in blond hair, long legs, and determination. When she heard of a career opportunity in Boston, she jumped at the chance. She didn't care that it was 2500 miles from home. Neither did it matter that the career entailed dancing naked and allowing strange men to worship her and express their devotion with cash.
When she landed in Boston, she became entangled with Tom, an arrogant, intelligent, and witty lover. Even though he was married, Kristen soaked up his knowledge and affections, and he became her mentor. Offsetting Tom's presence in her life was Kristen's roommate Jenette, who was also a stripper. Jenette was emotionally damaged and teetering on the edge of madness. Kristen had enjoyed Jenette's company, but as the psychosis ensued, the apartment became darker and more dangerous. As Jenette descended from lucidity, her emotional state grew more and more frightening.
While Kristen learns strip club politics and grapples with the possibility of losing her heart to a man she cannot have, she fearfully watches Jenette. Will Jenette survive, or will rage and regret overtake her, threatening her sanity, her life, and the lives of those around her?
Well, you've stripped this down to the cliche level pretty well.
And just exactly how is Tom "mentoring" Kristen the stripper?
Teaching her to strip to Bach?
I think Carl Hiassen pretty much set the bar for stripper novels with Strip Tease. After that, everything else looks dull.
