These fantasy lands, left over from the days when 42nd Street was the center of vice, eventually disappeared from the rapidly gentrifying city, their stories lost forever.
Not those of tenderloin grinder, Sheila McCelar. A late bloomer from small-town Michigan, Sheila arrived in New York as a struggling actress and soon found herself adrift.
Borderline homeless, and crashing with friends, she finally got steady work that paid the rent—as a stripper along the triple-x stretch of Eighth Avenue. When Times Square seeped into her blood, she ended up staying much longer than she imagined. Read less. Print length. Publication date. August 9, See all details. Next.

Verified Purchase. A great read, and in my particular case, very nostalgic. As a frequent visitor to the Times Square peeps decades ago during their heyday, I found it fascinating to learn something about Ms. McClear and her coworkers -- their backgrounds, circumstances, relationships to one another and to management, feelings about the clientele less then flattering, as I expectedand the drugs and booze that helped them get through their shifts.
I visited a couple theae ladies for many years, yet I didn't know a thing about them. This was by de, of course, but as crude and transactional as the setup was, I couldn't help but be curious.
Precisely observed. Unflinchingly honest. Despite the demons of mental affliction, the author maintains amazingly sharp recall and grasp of historical detail. McClear's work is courageous and intelligently organized, while being suspenseful and entertaining. One can only wish her well-deserved recognition in future. In her first year or so upon arriving in NYC, Sheila McClear, now a journalist, logged a fair amount of time dancing nude behind a glass wall in a couple of notorious Times Square peep shows.
It is a world fast fading now but it was still alive as recently as which is when McClear did her prancing and dancing. This book is a look behind the glass and into a world few of us will ever enter. For that reason alone, this book is valuable -- just to get into the mind set of why a young, intelligent woman would take up this lifestyle.
McClear explains that and so much more in clear, engaging prose that draws you into a world most of us would shun. It is dark, sometimes depressing, funny, touching -- nude girls by city short, the gamut of human emotions. Her writing seems to grow as the book unfolds until the last few paragraphs which are absolutely entrancing.
I'm glad she made her way out of there to a lifestyle she might have thought impossible back then. Nothing really special. I had to fight to finish. The story of women who work in the peep show businesses. It was actually pretty boring. I should not have forced myself to do continue on. One person found this helpful. The author has presented her experiences as a performer in the Peep Show Business that was located in Times Square. Some the stories were very funny and others were heart wrenching.
Disgusting how low humanity can go. I really enjoyed this book. McClear has told about her time working at the peep shows in NY very openly and honestly. The writer of this memoir worked the "live nude" booths in several sleazy Times Square establishments a few years ago. She had come to New York from Michigan, hoping to be a writer, but soon she was caught up in the need to make a living, got involved in this lifestyle and spent several years living the seedy existence of the women who had no other skills but using their bodies for men's enjoyment.
Now a writer for the New York Post, Ms. McClear has put together a book which brings the world she formerly lived in to the curious reader, especially those who walked past those establishments often but never really understood what they were about or the way the job impacted the women and distorted their worldview.
So well written that I couldn't put stop reading, I soon identified with the author as she changed into a street smart victim of this unique lifestyle. Nobody forced her to do this. She made her choices herself. And, for a while she enjoyed it but was wise enough to leave when she saw the effect it had her. There are also sections of the book about this sleaze business in general and the history of the politics of New York regarding this kind of nude girls by city.
I loved this book and heartily recommend it. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. This is a fine piece of immersive journalism. Ms McClear - what a great name - writes with McClear insight about the human costs of working in the Broadway peep show underworld. On the strength of this book, I would be happy to buy Ms McClear's next book - whatever the topic. A great new reporter. Report abuse. Your recently viewed items and featured recommendations.
