Stripped Down: A Naked Memoir
Stacey Keith (Author)
DescriptionSTRIPPED DOWN: A Naked Memoir is a look back at a surreal world kept carefully hidden from public view. This chronicle of life in the skin trade follows the meteoric rise of Stacey Keith, a girl scarcely out of her teens whose eye-popping assets launch her from wet T-shirt contests to the catwalks of Houston, strip bar capital of the world. Almost overnight, she is discovered by a famous porn star, who Svengalis her onto the pages of Playboy, Penthouse, and dozens of other men's magazines. While strutting her stuff onstage and across the country, Stacey makes the fateful decision to head to Hollywood. She's got everything a girl could want: fame, attention, endless piles of cash...but no idea what awaits her. With Internet porn overtaking men's magazines, everyone from her Mafia-boss road manager to her smarmy talent agent pressures Stacey to do more than just flash her flesh. Uber-boob filmmaker Russ Meyer verbally abuses her; rocker Don Henley tries to use her. Yet through it all, from the warped misogyny of Playboy to the S&M dungeons of the Pacific Palisades, Stacey's dark, self-deprecating humor will leave you laughing, crying and rooting for her at every step of the way.

About the Author
Stacey Keith is a multi-award winning writer and two time Golden Heart nominee. In her previous incarnation as a men's magazine model, she was the most photographed cover girl and centerfold of the mid 1990s, a notoriety she parlayed into B-movie roles, Feature Performances, and many days off to perfect her writing. At the tender age of twelve, she played hooky from school for six weeks so she could write her first novel, a historical fiction about ageing despot Henry VIII and his teen bride who lost her head over another man. Literally. An avid writer of fiction, nonfiction, poetry and short stories, Stacey has a predilection for the offbeat, the bizarre, and "anti-June Cleaver" heroines. She doesn't own a television, but reads compulsively-and would, in fact, go stark raving bonkers without books, of which there are many. She now lives in Calcata, a small medieval village in Italy that sits atop a cliff overlooking the Treja Valley. An artists' colony that even the locals refer to as paese di fricchettoni, or "village of freaks," Calcata is home to eccentrics, painters, musicians, and writers of all nationalities in addition to some pretty adorable kitties.
