Dork Whore: My Travels through Asia as a Twenty-Year-Old Pseudo-Virgin Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fresh out of the Israeli Army, twenty-year-old Iris Bahr decides to follow the footsteps of many before her and backpack through Asia. Only unlike the average traveler, she has more in mind than just seeing the sights: she is on a desperate mission to lose her virginity.

Dork Whore is a fresh and funny memoir about a young woman whose quirky personality and embarrassing neuroses always seem to get in the way of her getting what she wants. As Iris lands in hotel rooms in Bangkok, rides scooters out of opium-fogged compounds hidden in the jungle, and antagonizes an impromptu tour group in Vietnam, she begins to realize that the greatest obstacle she’ll have to overcome isn’t losing her virginity, but coming to terms with the reasons for her need to be accepted. Poignant, hilarious, and always original, Dork Whore is a remarkable mix of bawdy humor and heartbreaking moments, witty intelligence and touching personal discoveries. Iris Bahr has given us an unforgettable coming-of-age tale about how a young woman finally learns how to trust others—and her own judgment.

Synopsis:

Iris Bahr is a critically acclaimed actor, writer, and director. Best known for her recurring stint on Curb your Enthusiasm, Iris also just starred in the comedy Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector and the CBS pilot Big Bang Theory. She has performed stand-up comedy across the country and guest-starred in numerous TV shows, including Friends, The Drew Carey Show, and King of Queens. Born and raised in the Bronx, Iris relocated to Israel with her mother at the age of 12, before returning to the U.S. to study at Brown University. She currently lives in Los Angeles.
