"These bawdy, gritty tales of New York City in the 1960s and 1970s will captivate listeners, but it's Johnson who is the hero of this story. Listeners will relish every minute."- Library Journal

This program is read by Stephanie Johnson with an introduction read by Brandon Stanton, author of Humans of New York.
The storytelling phenomenon Humans of New York and its #1 bestselling books have captivated a global audience of millions with personal narratives that illuminate the human condition. But one story stands apart from the rest...
She is a woman as fabulous, unbowed, and irresistible as the city she lives in.
In 2019, Humans of New York featured a photo of a woman in an outrageous fur coat and hat she made herself. She instantly captured the attention of millions. Her name is Stephanie Johnson, but she's better known to HONY followers as "Tanqueray," a born performer who was once one of the best-known burlesque dancers in New York City. Reeling from a brutal childhood, immersed in a world of go-go dancers and hustlers, dirty cops and gangsters, Stephanie was determined to become the fiercest thing the city had ever seen. And she succeeded.
Real, raw, and unapologetically honest, this is the full story of Tanqueray as told by Brandon Stanton—an audiobook filled with never-before-told stories of Tanqueray's struggles and triumphs through good times and bad, personal photos from her own collection, and glimpses of New York City from back in the day when the name "Tanqueray" was on everyone's lips.
