Filthy, Naughty Read, with a huge dollop of humour. This book had me tittering, lots of great one-liners. A real tongue in cheek look at gender roles in the late 80's early 90's.

It's utter filth, and an absolute page turner.
You'll recognise loads of the characters from the tabloids.
A grubby jackie Collins.

Interesting to see what came out of Julie's mind but tedious with the constant references to fashion items and fancy foods.

If you skip the very boring sex you'll be left with about 10 pages to read. I did read this when it first came out & vaguely remembered it as more entertaining - it's not. Under a thin guise of the the woman making the decisions it I think it must many men's dream, a woman who allows him to come up with degrading situations & the woman, liberated, says 'oh yes please'. dull, dull, dull!

There are readers that will love this...It is akin to 50 shades of grey (only written better), and as such should appeal to those types that love that kind of book. Having said that, it is not to my taste, and I hated the constant reference (several times on almost every page) to designer labels...but of course this is only my personal view.

This is a deliberately outrageous book designed to point out the horrors of the yuppy culture of the time. It would shock your maiden aunt!

Burchill is a marmite person, you either hate her or love her. She surely can write though and I think she is a useful voice, she says things that others lack the courage to say.

Format: Paperback
Having followed Ms Burchills carreer from the early days of NME..Our herione has an "AMBITION" to be a top journilist.
She finds that the male ego, dominated profession means she has only one option to make it ...Sex.
She is offered a chance for her dream job, but with strings attached.
The owner of the paper, gives her 5 tasks of ever increasing sexual complexity. Her Ambition is so strong, she agrees.
Not knowing what she is letting herself into she is taken on a venture aimed at humilating her and exploring how far she will push her sexual behaviour.
She complicates things by falling for his son.
Julie Burchill has a very vivid and erotic imagination.
She has produced a brilliant erotic, trashy story.
A girlfriend took it on holiday and by the end of the week all four of us had read it and found we couldnt put it down.
