Book description
"Rocket Queen is back in print. Possibly one of the best, most insightful zines ever written, "Rocket Queen" is author Janet's tale of working as a dancer in Asheville, NC.

Issue #2 is Janet's account of working for a club in New Orleans. #2 is a bit darker overall, but just as interesting and heartfelt. Janet addresses feelings of hate and bitterness towards customers, and answers burning questions like, "Do dancers ever sleep with customers?" and "How does it feel when friends visit you at work?" We learn that during Mardi Gras, women fly in from all over the world to dance. And there's a great contributed piece from a woman who experienced childhood abuse, who deconstructs how that relates to her decision to dance. A really awesome zine."
