Roxana Shirazi

The Last Living Slut

Escuchar en la aplicación
Raw, Unvarnished, provocative, and poetically written, "The Last Living Slut: Born in Iran, Bred Backstage" is the memoir of Roxana Shirazi, who was raised during Iran's revolution within a politically active family and sent to England by her family aged ten during the Iran/Iraq war, and led far astray by the sound - and the sex appeal - of rock and roll. Alone in England and feeling a loss of identity, she found a new 'home' in the world of rock 'n' roll with bands like Guns 'n' Roses, Motley Crue and Velvet Revolver and discovered that there is no such things as rock 'n' roll: a place where only men are allowed to be transgressive, and sexually wild. A place where women are demonised for doing what men do. With heart-breaking accounts of child abuse, abortion and domestic violence, TLLS reads like an Iranian female Bukowski: raw, working class and poetic.
