Revue de presse

The most gripping real-life account of female depravity we’ve ever read... makes Pamela Des Barres’ I’m With the Band read like a nun’s diary in comparison. (Neil Strauss and Anthony Bozza, New York Times Best Selling authors)

“[A] DEFINITE read for the Metal Sludge faithful.” (Metal Sludge)

“Amazing book, if you can stomach it. It’s wild and brave!” (Danny Bonaduce, The Danny Bonaduce Show)

“Sounds like this page-turner has all the makings of an international best seller.” (Ami Angelowicz, thefrisky.com)

“While sex is a marketing took is a theme of the Gaga book, it’s presence is raw and real in The Last Living Slut.” (Orlando Sentinel)

“It’s not hard to see what might incite the mullahs in Tehran…” (Rush and Molloy, NYDailyNews.com)

“Far raunchier and better written than Pamela Des Barres’ classic I’m with the Band.” (Booklist)

“4 stars” (Revolver Magazine) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Présentation de l'éditeur

The outrageous, yet surprisingly moving, memoir of a girl who fled the Iranian Revolution and found her salvation in the deliriously sexy life of a rock- n -roll groupie. Honest, provocative, and vividly written, with a foreword by Neil Strauss, The Last Living Slut is the memoir of Roxana Shirazi, who was raised traditionally in Tehran. After her family spirits her to the West in flight from the Iranian Revolution, Shirazi is led far astray by the sound, and the sex appeal, of rock and roll. Caught between her sexual appetites, passion for music (and musicians), and fear of being a bad seed, Shirazi bares her soul to offer a raw account of her life as an eager-to-please rock groupie. With appearances by members of Guns N Roses, Mötley Crüe, Velvet Revolver, and many more, The Last Living Slut is a moving memoir of growing up in the political turbulence of Tehran; an unflinching portrayal of teenage cultural dislocation in London; a backstage romp that makes Pamela Des Barres Im with the Band read like a nuns diary; and a white-knuckled tale of jilted love and brutal revenge.

HASH(0x943408ac) étoiles sur 5 More sad than sexy. 3 octobre 2010
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I just finished this book, and it was a quick and easy read compared to what I normally read. As a child of the 80's metal hair bands myself--and a huge music fan, I was curious. I have personally been invited backstage for many concerts during that era (I looked like a tart when I was 16) scouted by road managers asking 'do you want to meet the band?' . Only to immediately protest that I was only a fan, and that I had to be at school in the morning--the moment I'd get backstage. Great White, twisted sister, iron maiden, judas priest...met them all at the height of their popularity. Yet, while my appearance stated otherwise...I would never have dreamed of sleeping with anyone in the bands I met. Therefore, I felt like reading this book would present the other side of the coin. What would life for me have been like if I had? Roxanna was someone not unlike myself, and yet she was on the dark side. I thought this was her memoir of a misspent youth chasing rockstars in their glory days. What a let down. This is about very recent history...of a woman willing to degrade herself in every conceivable way for washed up rockstars whose light faded decades ago. Her defiant 'slut and proud' mantra was not at all convincing, but rather hollow and sad. She was desperate for love, affection and attention,which it seems she has still not achieved to this date. I loved reading about her childhood in Tehran, and her relationship with her family....but little of her relationship with her family was explored in her 'slut' years. Did they know how promiscuous she was? Her bi-sexuality and multiple sex partner (often at the same time). Well...they sure know now! How did they feel about it? Her younger siblings? She explained she lived a double-life, but then suddenly she was telling her mom about her pregnancy from a lowlife rocker and impending abortion. Other than a sentence about her mom complaining that the men she dated being beneath her, there was no other feedback. There was an opportunity there to bring the story from her beginnings in Tehran, the molestations, the groupie life and then Mum into a full loop. I also take issue with her protection of this hypocritical politician who was a slime bucket, while freely throwing the names of the band members. Seems hypocritical on her part to me.

I didn't love it. I didn't hate it. It was a page turner...but it ultimately disappointed me with it's lack of sincerity and sad message.

HASH(0x94340900) étoiles sur 5 Little common sense and lots of drugs 14 avril 2013
Par B - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
There are things in this story that simply don't add up. For example, spoiler alert, the book starts with Nikki sixx taking Shirazi and a friend out on a date, and when sixx mentions his interest in gardening, shirazi draws a blank. How is it possible for someone who was pursuing academic as a second passion next to sex to be so bland and blah ? In a sense the " I'm with the band" and " groupie " life style is like the life style of a geisha, except you choose the man. The book gives you the vibe that shirazi was waiting for one of her rock stars to fall in love with her and sweep her off her feet. One can't help but wonder, the reason it didn't happen was because of the fact that her whole life was based on sex. No common sense, no conversation, no knowledge of anything but he sleaze rock scene. Another spoiler, she has unprotected sex with dizzy reed on their second date. I'm quite sure there has got to be a rule in the groupie handbook about having protected sex and importance of it, for reasons like STDs and AIDS. On and all, I felt bad for shirazi. She is snobby towards the older groupies who really have to fight the younger ones to appeal to rock stars, when in fact she is turning into one of them. It is a good fluff read for say a bus stop or waiting in line at the grocery store ( I have it on kindle so it's easier ), but there is nothing interesting about this book.this is the tale of a. Unsuccessful groupie.

HASH(0x94340bdc) étoiles sur 5 Better than expected! 1 juin 2010
Par Krista Lauder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Although the title made me wary, I was pleasantly surprised after reading this book. When I heard this was another groupie tell-all, I already envisioned what the story was going to be about, but I decided to give it a shot anyways. The tale is explicit, but has a completely different vibe than other rocker stories. Her story is very dark and emotionally compelling. Actually, the first half has nothing to do with rock and roll. Instead, she talks about her journal to sexual maturity, from her childhood in Iran to escaping to London, and all of the difficulties and heartbreak she experienced. She chronicles her whole life, from childhood to groupie-status, sharing her most explicit stories about her sexcapades with various rockers (all of which she names!). Maybe not a story for the more conservative types, but nevertheless a great read-- actually found myself unable to put it down. Not to mention the language is poetic and flowing, making the story easy to read and follow. Don't be scared off by the title-- give it a chance, you will be pleasantly surprised!

HASH(0x94345120) étoiles sur 5 As Disappointing as Shirazi's Life of Humping Fallen Stars in Monotonous Succession 7 décembre 2012
Par Sunday Chan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Roxana Shirazi's The Last Living Slut is a pathetic portrait of both groupie and group. The has-been rock stars come off as callous, and the never-beens as (understandably) bitter. Shirazi tries hard, a bit too hard, to paint herself as the ultimate hedonist: her fond reminiscences of flirting with boys and masturbating with a stick at the tender age of four had me rolling my eyes. Her assertion that she kind of enjoyed being fondled by a pervy old man as a child is stomach-turning.

Shirazi's description of her double life - pursuing her advanced degree in literature by day, bedding down with hair metal bands at night - is a refreshing change from the usual groupie tale. She may be eager for a taste of fame from the lips of the likes of Axl Rose (or the overwhelmingly less-famous Dizzy Reed), but she isn't planning on riding on anyone's coattails to the top. She'd rather ride on something else...

The dirty details of the riding are nicely balanced with raw accounts of loss and heartache.

Despite her eloquence, openness and apparent genuine caring for other groupies in her circle, Shirazi comes across as self-centred and unlikeable. Her tendency to lapse into poetically overwrought descriptions, particularly towards the end of the book, is also off-putting.

The book is structured like a coming-of-age story, but one neither feels like the author has truly matured at the end, nor had any innocence to begin with.

The Last Living Slut is disappointing, as disappointing as Shirazi's life of humping fallen stars in monotonous succession.

HASH(0x94345138) étoiles sur 5 Doesn't live up to its potential 25 janvier 2011
Par Doc Ed - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
After hearing Roxana Shirazi interviewed, I was expecting this to be more of a tale of how this young woman succeeded to rise above the degenerate lifestyle she found herself in. I was expecting the stories of sexual debauchery, as they were obviously relevant to the story. However, Shirazi appears to revel in retelling her sexual exploits, rather than tell how she has survived and prospered despite them. The book is a tell-all sexcapade of a poor woman who believes her only self worth is in sexually satisfying mostly B-grade rockers. I am not trying to be prudish, but it would have been better if she spent more time writing about her rise out of the gutter, that would have been a more empowering story. Still, I admire Shirazi for her honesty and her ability to endure and move on. This is not a bad book, it is just not what it was promised to be, or what it could have been.
