Summary
In the 1960's, Nancy Powell became Tammi True, the burlesque headliner at Jack Ruby's Carousel Club. She lived a double life, PTA mom by day and stripper by night. Then Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald and everything changed. From Catholic school to the juvenile court system, from a noisy club in Dallas to a quiet farm in the country, Nancy's life is wondrous and wayward, hilarious and heartfelt. Here it is, her world in her own words--in and out of the spotlight, and ready for an encore. [backcover]
