Mae West and the Count : Love and Loss on the Vaudeville Stage
by Guido Roberto Deiro




Overview -

Mae West & The Count takes you inside Mae's relationship with the man who launched her career and stole her heart.

Set in the first half of the 20th Century, this is the heretofore untold story of the torrid romance, lust-filled five-year marriage, and entwined show business careers of the Vaudeville headliner "Deiro" and the "Queen of Camp" Mae West.

Unpublicized by mutual agreement, the improbable, humorous, and often heartbreaking, personal and professional relationship between the Italian nobleman, who rose to "rock-star" fame, and the Brooklyn-born fifth-grade dropout who became a show business legend and an icon of sexual freedom, is intimately and elegantly exposed in this volume.

"I couldn't help myself - "D" was an amazing lover. The sex thing was terrific with this guy. I wanted to do it morning, noon and night, and that's all I wanted to do. "
-Mae West, Goodness Had Nothing to Do With It (1959).

"It went very deep, hittin' on all the emotions. You can't get too hot over anybody unless there's somethin' that goes along with the sex act, can you?"
-Mae West, Goodness Had Nothing to Do With It (1959).
