How I Learned to Take My Hat and Run

A memoir by Sue Camaione

Sue Camaione’s memoir, The Practical Seductress, exposes the dangerous path to sexual equality. Filled with humor and learned wisdom, Sue exposes the double standard of desire and turns it into a “practical” how-to approach while navigating treacherous and unpredictable paths. It’s an inspiring tale of resilience that defies social norms in a world where men seek adventure, and women find shame—all in the pursuit of pleasure. 

“A frank memoir, equal parts scintillating, thoughtful, and moving.”

– Kirkus Reviews
