Former Houston Chronicle Reporter Sarah Tressler To Tour Strip Clubs To Promote “Angry Stripper” Book
We here at the Tony Batman’s A Entertainment News cover everything about Gentlemens Clubs, or Strip Clubs if you will. The Sarah Tressler “Diary of an Angry Stripper” book should be an interesting one. We have toured Gentlemens Clubs all over the United Sates and have found that every Region, State, and City seem to have different views on strip clubs. We had our own “Diary of a Stripper” blog right here on the A Entertainment News. We wonder how in depth the former Houston Chronicle Reporter’s book could be, with the opinions coming from only a limited area….. Read more below….
From The Web- The former Houston Chronicle society reporter is launching a twenty-city book tour of gentlemen’s club across North America.
After writing her popular Angry Stripper blog from 2009 until her sudden firing from the Chronicle, Tressler gathered almost three years of insights into the world of exotic dancing — ranging from sordid behind-the-scenes details to a rather helpful glossary of stripping terms.
Set to for a July 15 wide release, the forthcoming book compiles these stories into a sort of expose-slash-memoir that sheds light not only on the adult entertainment industry, but also the struggles of a well-credentialed journalist in a shaky Great Recession economy. Tressler’s stripping book tour begins next week.
Clocking in at 200 pages, the book needed little additional writing aside from a new foreword and introduction, Tressler says.
Since she began stripping in 2004, however, Tressler has come across the occasional writer-dancer, including a student in a journalism class she was teaching at the University of Houston.
“I know it might sound weird, but as far as other stripper-writers go, there are a bunch of them in Portland,” she laughs, referencing Portlandia skit in which Fred Armisen plays a newly-employed exotic dancer.
“I think the culture of the city fosters this atmosphere of tolerance and acceptance, where you can be a someone at an office and go off and be a stripper at night,” Tressler says. “According to this one Portland blogger I follow, they even a name for them — stripsters.”
