A young British woman—broke and out of luck—does battle with Manhattan’s underworld of dancers, drugs, and the sex industry

Ruth Fowler is a 25-year-old Brit with a Cambridge degree and a middle-class background who arrives in New York City with dreams of becoming a journalist. But getting a work visa in post-9/11 America proves to be tricky. It doesn’t take long for funds and incentive to run out—sending Fowler to the heart of Manhattan’s dark underbelly of strip clubs and the sex trade, where as her alter ego, “Mimi,” she works as a dancer for more than two years. Both raw and shocking, Girl, Undressed tells the harrowing story of her descent into darkness, the young and wealthy Eton-educated Englishman with whom she perilously falls in love, and her revelatory journey back to herself.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tina | 6/8/2013

    " Amazingly well written. Slightly more vulgar than I would have liked, but that goes with the topic. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rosemary | 4/22/2013

    " What a hack. Entertaining just for the bad writing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tracey | 2/3/2013

    " Adult nonfiction/memoir. A stripper tells all, but rambles a bit in the process. Fowler is a writer that turned to stripping when she couldn't get work (due to visa problems)--she comes off as one of those bad spoken word poets sometimes--loves to rant, hear herself speak. "

    " Pretentious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Warren | 9/7/2011

    " Fowler loves repitition in her work to get a point across. Her stories do have some shock factor and get downright grimy - ultimately to prove the point about how stripping changes a woman. But she also drifts endlessly - the book could have been considerably shorter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/13/2011

    " A gritty behind-the-scenes look at the world of strippers and clubs. It made me feel ashamed to love my pole-dancing class so much... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 5/13/2010

    " I listened to the audiobook. It provided some interesting insight. Some of Fowler's imagery was impressive, however some of the themes seemed to get a bit repetitive by the end. "

    " read.. or read enough of it.
    I can't finish it.
    I stopped caring over 50 pages ago.
    I like my stripper memoirs funny. Probably my character flaw and not hers, but that's just how it is. "
