The Bunny Years

Where have all the Bunnies gone? Sure, they once slung highballs for sexist pigs, but today they’re mothers, doctors, entrepreneurs! Turns out Gloria Steinem’s 1963 undercover Playboy Club expose (A Bunny’s Tale) ruffled a lot of fur in Hefner’s proud but defunct warren of lapine cocktail waitresses. A brief, unsatisfying encounter with Steinem prompted Scott — now a successful publisher — to hunt down fellow ex-rabbits, including Lauren Hutton and Debbie Harry. They mount an entertaining rebuttal in The Bunny Years that’s mostly just fond first-person reminiscences of bygone bourgeois glamour and $100 cash tips, but still: Down the hutch. B+
