I love reading and reviewing books. I actually owned this book in 2005 because a fan read that I had written a collection of short stories and wanted to flood my P.O. Box with literature. He sent Pornstar by Ian Gittler, The Secret Lives of Hyapatia Lee by Hyapatia Lee and Lights, Camera, Sex! by Christy Canyon. Someone must have stolen Christy’s book because I know he sent it and yet, I can’t find it. If you’re into stealing books, this a good book to steal.
I know I love a book when I can’t think of anything to say except that it’s really good. There are a ton of typos, but it doesn’t matter because Christy Canyon comes through so clearly and candidly that I breezed right past them to continue reading.
I’m really into porn star bios and autobiographies right now. I have read three and, so far, this one is my favorite. It’s simply surprising and wonderful. Christy is hysterical! I snorted when she talked about finally telling her father why she wasn’t interested in pursuing a serious relationship with Beverly Hillbillies star Max Baer. There were so many unexpected moments like that, I was laughing so loud Doug was commenting on it from the other room.
Christy Canyon has the kind of attention to detail that makes for enjoyable reading. I was transported through the 70′s and 80′s with regular glimpses at Hollywood, passing fashions and the adult industry. Her emotional observations about family and relationships are candid and never overdone. Her voice reads loud and clear that self-awareness is the greatest personal achievement one can attain, regardless of where our life’s path might find us.
I hope she publishes the promised sequel Danger, Curves Ahead. I will be one of the first to buy it!
