Description
A strutting, bawdy, erudite stripper, Gypsy Rose Lee possessed a gift for delivering exactly what America needed to forget about the Great Depression. Karen Abbott, author of Sin in the Second City, finds in Gypsy's career a mirror for an era of ambition, glamour, struggle, and survival. Through interviews and never-before-published material, she vividly delves into Gypsy's world, including the intense triangle between her sister, actress June Havoc, and their formidable mother Rose, a petite but ferocious woman who literally killed to get her daughters on the stage. Interwoven with the saga of the Minskys—four scrappy brothers from New York City who would pave the way for Gypsy's brand of burlesque—Abbott creates a rich portrait of a legend in legendary times.

"At its core, American Rose is a haunting portrait of a woman ... offering her audiences a sassy, confident self while making sure they would never know the damaged soul who created her."—LATimes
