Waiting on Wednesday (4)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme sponsored by Breaking the Spine in which bloggers, authors and other bookish folk talk about books they are highly anticipating. 


Today I take a slight departure from both National Poetry Month and my usual waiting on wednesday fare to something a little different than my normal urban fantasy/paranormal romance/young adult genres. I do love to read the occasional memoir, especially of women, so I was interested and curious when I came across "The Last of the Live Nude Girls" by Sheila McClear. 
I'm facinated by the lives and stories of women who have lived and worked in the sex industry. I'm a huge advocate for a dialogue about sex in this country, and I think we need more first hand accounts of what its really like in the trenches, so to speak. It's a really tenuous line to cross and the debate circles around in several circles: is sex work empowering or degrading to women? Can it/is it both? I can't wait to see what Ms. McClear has to say about it, so that's why this book is my pick this week.
