Xaviera Hollander

Xaviera Hollander's first book, "The Happy Hooker, " was published in 1972; since then it has been translated into fifteen languages and sold millions of copies around the world. Hollander began writing the column "Call Me Madam" in "Penthouse" that same year -- a role she fulfills to this day -- and has been named the magazine's most popular columnist. Now a promoter of the arts in her native Holland and the author of more than a dozen books, she divides her time between Spain and Amsterdam.
