"The Wild West Club"

Pleasant Gehman writes poetry about life as seen by the girl floating face down in the martini glass. Her latest book "Princess of Hollywood" is more hardcore dysfunction, decadence, cynicism and sinfulness from Hollywood's baddest bad girl.

"Her writing is mostly about hope in the face of despair, with L.A. as the constant backdrop -- peopled by whores, bag-ladies, transvestites and street people, by teenage hookers and yuppies in love with drug addicts... a dizzy binge of candid observations." - Poetry Flash

Listen to a sample from her solo spoken word CD "Ruined" on New Alliance Records.
