"The Last Living Slut" was billed as a scandalous tell-all exploration into the seedy world of a modern rockstar groupie. Unfortunately, on this account, it just does not deliver. What Roxana Shirazi has produced herein is the biography of a sexually-abused young Iranian woman who, with her beloved grandmother at her side, escapes political persecution in her homeland, only to take up a debauched life in the UK years later. The names that are named are largely all B-grade musicians at best (Dizzy Reed, Towers of London, Kid Ego, Avenged Sevenfold, Steven Adler, L.A. Guns, etc.), and the details on these couplings will leave you pitying Ms. Shirazi's misguided attempts rather than waving a flag for 'Girl Power'. Not an altogether bad author, Shirazi's prose maintain some poetic moments; though her unoriginal tale of rock n' roll excess is decidely lacking in shock and awe.
