''From London to New York, the new burlesque bars and clubs are attracting audience that would baulk at frequenting a pub with a strip show on Saturday nights...It's this new phenomenon that Wilson sets out to examine...Not only do more and more men and women enjoy watching burlesque...For Wilson, such unexamined pleasure is problematic...she looks to the history of burlesque for an answer to this conundrum.'' -- Dea Birkett, "Oldie"
