Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Steinem's introduction declares her belief in the integrity of the revelations that shocked the public when Lovelace's Ordeal appeared. With McGrady, Lovelace here writes a sequel, the story of her life after she escaped from the pimp she claimed forced her into prostitution and into filming ``Deep Throat.'' Many of the hideous experiences detailed in the first book are repeated here, which readers will find hard to bear, unless they are intrigued by the brutalizing pornography that pays handsomely for everyone except its victims. Naming celebrities and mob figures, Lovelace makes a strong case against demeaned ``entertainment.'' Now a wife and mother, the former ``sexual zombie'' is also an active supporter of human rights. She lectures at colleges on degradations suffered by women as sex objects. She appeared before a Senate subcommittee to testify against the right of porn purveyors to First Amendment protection. Lovelace's evidence should engage civilized people in the fight against businesses that exploit women and children. 75,000 first printing; $100,000 ad/promo; author tour.
