Anything But a Wasted Life (HarperCollins) is a candid, unapologetic memoir by a veteran sex worker who has experienced the pitfalls of being naked in front of strangers and the absurdities that arise when you fake intimacy for a living. It is also about a woman who has rarely said no to life: Falling in love with a girl in high school. Patrolling all night in a cop car while high on acid. Living in a luxurious, converted missile silo from the Cold War. Sita shows the reader the secret world of stripping and prostitution through an often drunk, occasionally sarcastic, and frequently funny magnifying glass.
