NO MAN'S LAND is the true-life story of a writer who detours into the seedy world of New York strip clubs. If that sounds erotic, forget it. Ruth Fowler does not want to encourage male fantasies about strippers. She hates the men who come to see her strip, even the few "good guys" who want to help her. She sneers at their self-serving charity. She performs her own sad story like someone trying to prove that it's in her past, which, happily, it is. She offers a charming British accent--girls are "gulls"--and perfectly imitates a Brooklyn accent, with all those hard vowels. This is a troubling story from the other side of the stage, honest to a fault. M.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2008]
