I met the World Famous *BOB* years ago, when we were doing a shoot for Playboy TV in New York City. We saw her dance in a subterranean burlesque club. She was all shimmer-and-shake and was as large-as-life in person as she was on the screen.

Photographer Amy Touchette spent four years following *BOB* on stage and behind the scenes. The result: a book-length portrait of the complicated life of a 21st century Marilyn Monroe.

"Eventually the self-described 'female-female impersonator' found her home in the 'neo-burlesque' movement that began in New York City in the 1990s - a place which allowed her to embrace her femininity in a way that finally made her comfortable."
