“Strip by Hannah Sward is coming this September. Imagine if Bukowski were a female stripper addicted to crystal meth. It’s like that, but better.”
Tortoise Books, September 20, 2022
“Arresting, weighty, and visceral as hell, Hannah Sward’s Strip is a crushing tale of physical, emotional and spiritual survival.”
Melissa Border, author of Milk Fed
“Hannah Sward’s memoir of how she blundered into the sex industry is touchingly honest, and written with a light touch.”
JM Coetzee, Nobel Prize in Literature, author of Disgrace
“Strip is the story of Sward’s bohemian and bizarre upbringing, raised by her poet father and absent mother, she captures her pain with wisdom and hilarity — her dark days as a sex worker and her spiral into addiction, and how she finally recovers, blossoming into the woman she was always meant to be—a talented writer. I could not put this book down.”
