“[Down the Rabbit Hole] reads like a celebrity memoir infused with The Bell Jar and Going Clear.” (Buzzfeed)
From the Back Cover
When Holly Madison broke free from the oppressive confines of the Playboy mansion (which meant exiting a hit television show), she was determined to start over—from scratch and on no one’s terms but her own.
Deciding to roll the dice and begin again in the glamorous and dreamlike city of Las Vegas, Holly quickly realizes that while she may have left her past in the rearview mirror, the labels and stereotypes that came from it weren’t so quick to leave her. Fiercely committed to taking charge of her own narrative, Holly dives headfirst into a journey of self-discovery that includes a whirlwind stint on Dancing with the Stars, the coveted lead in the Strip’s hottest burlesque spectacular, and a reality series spotlighting her new life as a single woman. If this weren’t enough to keep her busy, Holly explores the decadent, exclusive inner-world of Sin City, navigating its dating scene with humor and heart, and quickly learning that each seemingly romantic disaster holds an important, and in some cases difficult, lesson about herself.
Through it all, Holly realizes that her journey to self-sufficiency is also her path to healing. Letting go of trying to prove herself to others, she finally gains the courage to confront her past—and in the process finds the life and love she deserves.
