This is not your mother's rock and roll. After readying the glossed-over and romanticized accounts of other groupies and rock bands, this was a big eye opener. She pulls no punches and neither does her visceral writing style. All I can say is... Holy Cow.

Although the title made me wary, I was pleasantly surprised after reading this book. When I heard this was another groupie tell-all, I already envisioned what the story was going to be about, but I decided to give it a shot anyways. The tale is explicit, but has a completely different vibe than other rocker stories. Her story is very dark and emotionally compelling. Actually, the first half has nothing to do with rock and roll. Instead, she talks about her journal to sexual maturity, from her childhood in Iran to escaping to London, and all of the difficulties and heartbreak she experienced. She chronicles her whole life, from childhood to groupie-status, sharing her most explicit stories about her sexcapades with various rockers (all of which she names!). Maybe not a story for the more conservative types, but nevertheless a great read-- actually found myself unable to put it down. Not to mention the language is poetic and flowing, making the story easy to read and follow. Don't be scared off by the title-- give it a chance, you will be pleasantly surprised!

Less of a memoir about feminism and "taking back" the word slut... more of a diary of explicit encounters with B-list (maybe even C-list), aging musicians. Roxana's need for acceptance and willingness to do anything sexual for attention makes me sad. It's no wonder I had never heard of this book before. Her metaphors are the most tiresome part- if you choose to read it anyway, I hope you like the phrase "raven-haired rocker" because she uses it on just about every other page.
