Lovereading view...

A rather poignant, provocative and heart-warming memoir by a lady who could have hit rock bottom and stayed there, yet she fought her way back with attitude. The introduction announces the contents with gusto. From secretary to stripper, topless model to social worker, Janet Green experimented with sex, drugs and rock and roll in the sixties and seventies. She was sexually abused, manipulated and yet has maintained her integrity and learned to love herself. Janet Green has used her diaries to write her memoir and has included some of her poetry, which fixes eerily on her feelings at the time. ‘Rebel Without A Clue’ includes a number of atmospheric photos, where her character shines from the page and helps to colour in the background to the story. The early life story of Janet is on occasion an eyebrow raising one, yet is also emotional and inspirational. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Rebel Without A Clue A Memoir by Janet Green

Having been brutally introduced to sex at the tender age of fourteen, Janet Green's strikingly honest memoir begins as she completes her first gig as a stripper at a rough pub in Hackney; she's very nervous, and rather stoned...Beginning in the 1950s, Janet's early sexual experiences are put aside when she begins to question her sexuality - she rejects any consideration that she might be a lesbian - she just wants to experiment. In a time when gay sexuality was hidden, Janet was unsure how to meet other girls who were not lesbians. It was her sister, Debbie, who suggested swinging parties and Janet found that that was the solution. Janet went on to live in a passionate, but volatile, relationship before relocating to a hippy commune where she developed a penchant for recreational drugs, becoming seduced by the mellow lifestyle. During her time there, Janet was introduced to Dany who encouraged her to become both a stripper and glamour model. Knowing this had a limited shelf life, Janet begun a degree course in Social Sciences and embarked on a relationship with a young woman, Naomi. Around the same time, Janet's sister relayed the shocking revelation that their father has sexually abused her as a child, which flung Janet's life into despair. Shocked and devastated, Janet poured her energies into study. She went on to graduate and found that her confidence blossomed. Bright, lovable and popular, Janet discovered that education was her passport to success. She might still be a rebel, but no longer without a clue...
