Item description for The Art of Table Dancing: Escapades of an Irreverent Woman by DC Stanfa...

DC Stanfa's ultimate goal in life is to outlive her acne, survive the dateless experience of high school, and get the hell out of Toledo. She has succeeded at all three. Follow this true, humorous journey of a rebellious Catholic schoolgirl in the 1970s, and her escape from the repressed notions of the Church and other adolescent constraints--such as living in the body of Peter Pan and in the shadow of a popular sister.

While looking for fun and love, she also finds trouble in Dallas in the 1980s, gets her fifteen minutes of fame by posing as VP of Talent for GQ magazine on a beach trip, and ends up on a notorious talk show.

To DC, falling down means always looking up and laughing in the face of whatever threw you to the ground--often looking in the mirror--and to get back up on that table and dance! She learns that life's little betrayals are necessary to really growing up--as is going home again. And in the end, humor, hope, and a sense of belonging prevail.

More About DC Stanfa

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! DC Stanfa's abilities in salesmanship led to speaking before both social and professional events where her topics include From Bold To Sold: Getting What You Want By Being A Shameless Opportunist. Her engagements?built around humor and the importance of self-esteem?draw from her own experiences at surviving high school, the Catholic church, datelessness, and the Jerry Springer Show. Born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, DC insists she grew up after college in Dallas during the 1980s, an experience she refers to fondly as ?the destructive and reconstructive years.? Her maverick spirit is revealed early on in The Art of Table Dancing: Escapades of an Irreverent Woman, when she?as a mere seventh-grader?goes toe-to-toe with the church, and continues through a chronicle of crazy-but-true stories revealing how imagination and perseverance may carry one through. From Toledo to sex in the Big City, DC manages both an epic escape and a remarkable transformation. Armed with sarcasm and a pen, she proves truth is funnier than fiction. DC is active in Cincinnati based Women Writing For (a) Change and was featured in an interview for In The Tank, a documentary program on PBS. She lives in Cincinnati with her daughter, Cori, and two cats, the requisite writerly minimum.

DC Stanfa currently resides in Toledo, in the state of Ohio.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Art of Table Dancing: Escapades of an Irreverent Woman?

If You Read "Rambler" and Think "Car," this Book is for You!  Apr 8, 2007
Yes, this book is very, very funny, but it is also poignant. The Art of Table Dancing is not just a shallow, frothy, beach-read about the madcap adventures of DC Stanfa, man-crazy, liquor-swilling, table-dancing, Ohio-girl gone wild. It's about DC Stanfa--daughter, friend, wife, mom, Catholic. Stanfa has a uncanny ability to see the humor (sometimes knee-slappingly funny and sometimes achingly sad) in almost every situation, but it is her life journey that holds the reader's interest from the book's "Dedication" to the very last page. The Art of Table Dancing is a very brave book.
A "laugh out loud" book!  Aug 25, 2006
Talk about "laughing out loud"...I snorted, guffawed, and hooted my way through this book. From the side-splitting antics, to the poignant moments DC shares with us, this is the "real deal"; especially when it comes to her light-hearted, personal portrayal of the aches and pains we all can relate to growing up. I am proud to say that I know this "wild child" from the "old days", and I am very happy for her success. Keep "em coming DC!
DC's book is like a never-ending girls night out  Aug 16, 2006
Life's a beach. So laugh. That's exactly what you won't be able to stop doing after reading The Art Of Table Dancing by DC Stanfa. I highly recommend this book to any female who just needs "a girls night out."
What a perfect beach read!  Jun 9, 2006
I loved this book! Funny to sad and every emotion in between. I couldn't put it down. DC Stanfa has packed a lifetime of events, calamities, and wonderful memories into a great book to which most every person I know (including me) can relate, from the "FBI Guy" relationship to the struggles (albeit very funny struggles at times) of finding her way down life's path. The book is written with such humor, it'll leave you wondering what happens after you turn the last page. Maybe a Table Dancing, II? I hope so!
Great Read...Laughed and Loved it  Apr 24, 2006
DC Stanfa is one of a kind. I loved her book. I couldn't put it down even though I have my own to finish. She's a pure delight and a great writer. You'll laugh, cry, and relate in many ways. You'll come away from this book dying to meet this woman.
