More About This Book

Overview

Amaya is a young Filipino immigrant who has been an exotic dancer in Honolulu, Hawaii before she was even 21. This novel is a semi-biographical examination of Amaya's life in the rural Philippines, her early teenage years in Hawaii and her life as an exotic dancer. She is unapologetic about her profession of getting naked nightly for an endless parade of customers and her descriptions of life inside a strip club, her fellow dancers, and the customers they perform for are sometimes crude and cynical, but they're also laced with humor, many times black humor. Amaya is direct and honest about her reasons to become an exotic dancer, and benefits and the dark side of the profession, and about her attempts to get out of the life. Hopefully, this novel will provide the reader a better understanding of the women caught in this career either by choice or happenstance and paints them in a shade of normalcy that is not found anywhere else. The language is many times rough and offensive, but it is the world Amaya lives in.
