Iranian Rock Groupie Tells All In 'The Last Living Slut' Memoir

Rush & Molloy of New York's Daily News report: Roxana Shirazi (MySpace page) engaged in some risky sex while hanging with rock's raunchiest hair bands. But the unrepentant groupie is courting bigger danger with her memoir, "The Last Living Slut: Born in Iran, Bred Backstage".

Shirazi says several editors and agents passed on her manuscript for fear of a fatwa — the Islamic death sentence that once put "Satanic Verses" author Salman Rushdie in fear of his life.

But her two champions, authors Neil Strauss and Anthony Bozza, finally persuaded HarperCollins to publish it under the new Igniter imprint.

The book's official description: "'The Last Living Slut' is the salaciously literary and sexually liberated account of one young woman's transition from traditionally-raised Iranian to rock and roll groupie . . . Paired with a powerful introduction by New York Times bestselling authors Neil Strauss and Anthony Bozza, Roxana Shirazi's 'The Last Living Slut' is a passionate tale of jilted love, brutal revenge, and backstage encounters that make Pamela Des Barres's 'I'm With The Band' read like the diary of a nun."
