Like the city it takes place in, Club 42 is as much a tribute to a bygone era as it is a launching pad for something brand new. Joanna doesn’t sugarcoat a thing (which shouldn’t surprise anyone familiar with her work). Sex sells, sometimes it feels good, sometimes it’s a chore. No matter what, it’s always an adventure.

Joanna asked me to read her new book. I told her I don’t like vanilla porn. She didn’t ask a second time… she commanded in her sternest Domme voice, “Read it!” I followed her instructions. During the next ninety minutes of digesting the book, I smiled a lot, laughed, commiserated, empathized, missed New York City, got envious, got a few boners, and ended up hiring a cruel Dominatrix who does house calls. I assume like most fans of Miss Angel after reading her book, I felt hot, bothered, dirty, and in desperate need of a sound beating!
