The infamous biography of the legendary Deep Throat star, in which she reveals a systematic programme of abuse and degradation on the part of Chuck Traynor, her partner and director. Its original publication in 1980 marked the public culmination of a startling volte-face that had the woman credited with making porn acceptable denounce the industry and its practices wholeheartedly, claiming that she had been forced at gunpoint to perform scenes and that she had felt no pleasure in what she was doing. Remains the world's best-known book on porn.
Linda Lovelace was the legendary star of Deep Throat and, later, a prominent feminist. She died in 2002.
