New book - FEUDING FAN DANCERS. I'm the author of the best-selling BEHIND THE BURLY Q, GODDESS OF LOVE INCARNATE. Follow me ON IG @lesliezemeckis. FFD is about Sally Rand and Faith Bacon, showgirls from the 1930s. I am an author and award-winning documentarian. My stories focus on the stigmatized, the misunderstood and the outsiders; from burlesque stars to circus "freaks." Read and watch stories about the interesting - long-forgotten women and American pop culture from the early part of the 20th century. Sign up for my newsletter at www.lesliezemeckis.com

Primates of Park Avenue

What starts out as an interesting premise
quickly turns into silliness. Was the author really so comfortable living the life of a Park Avenue Mommy and "deceiving" her "friends"? Ultimately it didn't matter.

Try a silly drink with this
champagne
grenadine
lime juice
splash of vodka.
