The 30th anniversary edition of one of the modern classics of the sexual revolution--with a new Afterword by the author.
An international phenomenon upon its initial publication in 1972, The Happy Hooker established Xaviera Hollander--previously the most powerful madam in New York City--as the world's best-known observer and commentator on sexual issues. A racy account of her life behind the brothel door, The Happy Hooker became an instant classic that marked the intersection between the Playboy generation and the sexual revolution of the feminist era. Hollander left no vice unturned, covering lesbianism, bondage, and other sexual appetites with a frank tone that left the reader with no doubt that they were listening to a master...or mistress, as it were.
Now restored gloriously to print in a first-ever trade paperback edition, The Happy Hooker will reintroduce a whole new generation to the carefree days of swinging in the '60s and '70s.
