The G-String Murders (Femmes Fatales)

Gypsy Rose Lee


A secret set within the underworld of burlesque theater, The G-String Murders used to be penned in 1941 through the mythical queen of the stripteasers—the witty and wisecracking Gypsy Rose Lee. Narrating a twisted story of a behind the curtain double homicide, Lee offers a desirable glance backstage of burlesque, richly populated through the likes of strippers Lolita LaVerne and Gee Gee Graham, comedian Biff Brannigan and Siggy the g-string salesman. this can be a international the place girls fight to make money acting bumps and grinds, have gangster boyfriends, sip beer among acts and pay their very own approach at dinner.

Femmes Fatales restores to print the simplest of women’s writing within the vintage pulp genres of the mid-20th century. From secret to hard-boiled noir to taboo lesbian romance, those rediscovered queens of pulp supply subversive views on a turbulent period. benefit from the sequence: Bedelia; Bunny Lake Is Missing; By Cecile; The G-String Murders; The women in 3-B; Laura; The guy Who enjoyed His Wife; Mother reveals a Body; Now, Voyager; Return to Lesbos; Skyscraper; Stranger on Lesbos; Stella Dallas; Women's Barracks.
