[very nice clean copy, just minimal shelfwear to book and jacket]. (B&W photographs) INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author, opposite the title page, in the year of publication: "___! / All that you / read here is true, / and the stories I / didn't write make for / good bed-time stories." The author's story of her journey from 1967, when she was "a thirty-one-year-old wife, mother, and schoolteacher in Ossining, New York, [who] had never slept with any man but her husband, had always wanted to be an actress, and suffered from an ulcer," to 1969, when she "was living with her lover in Greenwich Village and was starring nude on the stage in Oh! Calcutta!" An "exceptional book by and about an exceptional woman, [who] with an honesty as compulsive as it is brutal, writes of what she gave up, what she got, and what she has learned through both pain and pleasure."
