Kristin Kaye

Author Kristin Kayeabout this book: At age twenty-three and fresh out of drama school, I landed my dream job: to write and direct a Broadway show in New York City starring twenty-five of the world's strongest and most muscular women. It was my Broadway debut and everything was looking up. Who knew I'd land smack in the middle of the world of steroids, the side business of strong women wrestle men for money, and a judging controversy that threatens to split the sport in two.

Iron Maidens blends first-person narrative of my foray into women's bodybuilding with a history of the sport. If you loved the movie 'Best in Show,' the radio show 'This American Life,' you just love women's muscles or you can resist unbelievable stories with a narrator running head first into a train wreck, then Iron Maidens is for you.

Utne magazine named Iron Maidens 'one of 5 new titles for women who resist easy definition' and the book was a finalist for the Oregon Book Awards. Plus, there are gorgeous black and white photos of some of the legends women's bodybuilding.
