THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT by Georgina Spelvin

This is Georgina Spelvin's self-written memoir, published by Georgina's World, Inc. in 2008. Georgina is a former porn star, who got her start in the 'business' in 1972. I rate this book 4 stars out of 5.

The book begins on the set of her first adult film, High Preistess of Sexual Witchcraft. Georgina is brutally honest throughout the entire book and doesn't hold back. She takes us, year by year, through her life and some of the films she's done. I really wanted to know more about the two suicide attempts that she briefly mentioned. I found that to be the most interesting part of her story. Maybe she'll talk more about it in a future book. One can only hope.

I think her greatest achievement is surviving alcoholism. I'd have liked to have known when it began and what she thought caused it. I'd also like to know what her brother and extended family thought of her career choice. She's definitely lead an interesting life. She's very humorous and is a great storyteller and I'm glad she's found happiness with her husband. I found this to be an enjoyable read because of her humorous style of writing and her honesty. I love the classy cover too. Great photo.

Her book can be purchased at Amazon, Lulu, Barnes and Noble and from her own site. Her filmography can be found here.
