Deluce, Dolores. “Blow Jobs: A Guide to Making it in Show Business or Not!”, (Counter Culture Diva) (Volume 2), Double Delinquent Press, 2014.
A Show Business Whore Writes
I cannot help but Dolores Deluce is somehow related to Dolores Delago, the diva created by Bette Midler. The two women certainly share their trashiness. Deluce describes herself as the “Counter Culture Diva” and she tells us how she would do anything to survive in show business (aside from taking a day job). She says she needs to keep her calendar open for auditions and working during the day could hurt her chances of getting to them.
I am not sure how to classify this book—it is certainly not a self-help manual and even though is quite funny this is not a book of jokes. It could be something of an autobiography with some very humorous vignettes and it might be something of a guide to Hollywood dreams. ”Blow Jobs” is a continuation of what we read in her first book,
“My Life, a Four Letter Word”. Dolores keeps us up to date as to how she has been and tells us a good deal more about herself. She also does some serious namedropping. “Dolores went from being Dean Martin’s maid to a bimbo’s slave that led to pubic hair trimming on XXX film sets. She dressed David Bowie, and The Ramones and endured humiliation as a nude extra in a Rob Zombie horror classic” and so much more.
Before we even start to read, Dolores warns us: “If you can’t handle the truth and nothing but the naked truth, beware of this book. It is important to understand that this is a“cautionary tale–not for the squeamish or faint-of-heart”.
