Traci lords underneath it all by traci lords a great read

  1. 1. Traci Lords: Underneath It All by Traci Lords A Great ReadNora Kuzma was a troubled teenager from Steubenville, Ohio; Traci Lordswas the underage skin mag/porn queen who became the centerpiece ofthe adult video industrys greatest scandal. In reality, they were one and thesame, the subject of this slick, if thin autobiography. But whats strikinghere is not the familiar storyline--confused, sexually abused teen falls inwith drugs and the wrong Southern California crowd, forges fake I Ds tobecome Penthouse Pet of the Month at 16 and the 80s hottest adult star,then arrested as focus of the Reagan administrations crackdown on porn,only to become reborn as cleaned-up, psychoanalyzed/rehabed purveyorof legitimate film, TV, and music career. Rather, whats striking is Lordsscapacity for denial, compartmentalization, and myopia when it serves herends. Her scandalous tenure in the skin trade--undeniably the solebasis for her infamy and subsequent legitimate career--is glossed overhere in a few score pages, with more attention paid to the heavy -metalmusicians that dotted her life than the motivations and machinations of theFeds who literally changed her life; Slashs snake gets more ink here than
  2. 2. Attorney General Ed Meese. Quick to ladle generous sympathy on her ownplight, she heaps little but scorn upon those from the seedy past of herporn-star alter-ego, yet seems to have had few qualms about formallyadopting that moniker as her legal name. --Jerry McCulleyPersonal Review: Traci Lords: Underneath It All by Traci LordsI really enjoyed this book. I thought it was an open and honest look intoTracis life as told by her. Thiere are a few points in this book where herwriting is not the best but I did not buy it just for the skilled writing, I get akick out of people who bash autobiographies regarding exact grammer andlack of a well told story, after all it is real life and real life is messy.If you have any interest in Traci, or the porn subject I recomend readingthis book.
