Strip: A Memoir

Available for Pre-Order. This item will be available on September 20, 2022


Born in the bohemian seventies, Hannah Sward was abandoned by her mother, and lived with her father on an island with no stores or cars. Kidnapped and molested by a stranger at age six, she grew up to be a stripper and a prostitute with a taste for crystal meth. (Which at least seemed like a surefire way to lose weight.) Strip is a hilarious and heartfelt memoir of one woman’s journey from innocence to a darker world, and beyond it to growth and grace. (With stops along the way for silent gurus, Iranian and Orthodox sugar daddies, foot fetish work, and drinking in the CVS bathroom before therapy sessions.)
