Emily must team up with a thief named Paelen, the goddess Diana, and a boy named Joel in order to return Pegasus to Olympus and rescue the gods from a certain death.Along the way, Emily and her companions will fight monsters, run from a government agency that is prepared to dissect Pegasus, and even fly above the Manhattan skyline—all as part of a quest to save Olympus before time runs out.
Written by a notable actress and former Playboy Bunny and coinciding with NBC’s new show The Playboy Club, this collection of memories from more than 250 women is “a smart oral history” (Esquire).
Stylish, seductive, and filled with cigarette-puffing, martini-swilling bad behavior, the allure of the 1960s has been captivating viewers since Mad Men
exploded onto the airwaves. NBC’s upcoming drama The Playboy Club
hopes to continue that trend, and The Bunny Years
shows fans the real-life stories inside the Club. Dark Shadows
actress and former Playboy Bunny Kathryn Leigh Scott delivers a fascinating memoir interwoven with personal profiles and more than 200 photographs of the remarkable women who worked as Bunnies during the twenty-five-year history of the Playboy Clubs—a provocative and insightful group portrait of the beautiful, free-spirited, and independent women who thrived in an era of change. Hugh Hefner himself contributed a Foreword to the book, giving it his blessing as the ultimate Playboy.
Based on the author’s interviews with more than 250 former Bunnies, as well as her recollections working in New York as Bunny Kay, The Bunny Years includes profiles of such well-known icons as Lauren Hutton, Gloria Steinem, and Debbie Harry. From the opening of the flagship Chicago club in the 1960s through the closing of the last club in 1986 and featuring behind-the-scenes stories, including the stars, politicians, and other luminaries who frequented the club as Keyholders; tricks the Bunnies used to make sure they filled out their skimpy costumes; and the surprising politics of the Playboy Club, The Bunny Years ushers readers into a glamorous and enthralling world.
