Book Description

3 Dec 2007
Professor by day, callgirl by night - a true story Jenny is left penniless by an ex-boyfriend and, in order to make ends meet, she finds herself juggling two lives - respected college-lecturer by day and $200-an-hour high class callgirl 'Tia' by night. Tia's clients range from the pitiful to the downright disturbing: there's the man obsessed with wearing her underwear, the client who wants her to pretend to be his mother and the punter who gets his kicks from inflicting pain. Tia is paid to fulfil all kinds of desires. Despite her madam's protection, Tia is drawn into a world of increasing danger, trying to dodge undercover cops, resist the temptation of drugs and, most of all, avoid falling in love with the wrong man. As Jenny juggles the twin roles of professor and prostitute, the eventual strain of keeping her life secret from friends and family forces her to re-examine everything - before her two worlds inevitably collide!

3.0 out of 5 stars Patchy 4 Oct 2006
By Sarah Durston TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I had recently read 'Priceless' by Charlie Daniels and thought it would be interesting to read about someone's experiences in America.

I did quite enjoy the book but felt it was quite patchy. Whilst we learn intimate details about the sex acts performed, I don't think we ever get to find out about Angell's feelings or about the impact this work had on her life. It was written with a strange detachment which left me wondering why she'd chosen to write this book in the first place.

At times the book appears to be attempting titlilation, but then will preach to the reader about not making presumptions about people working in vice. At times she is downright patronising to the reader, she says explicitly to the reader that her 'Madam' is no doubt better read that you are. I felt this was uneccessary, especially from a person who is preaching about not making generalisations!!

The parts of the book that explore Angell's friendship with a girl who becomes addicted to crack are touching and the nearest I felt to exploring any emotions.

On the whole OK but don't expect any great revealations.

3.0 out of 5 stars confusion 11 Feb 2008
Format:Paperback
in the past I have read memoir books on prostitution such as 'call me elizabeth' and 'priceless' books I really enjoyed. I thought I would try callgirl as I am a fan of memoir books in all subjects. my confusion with this book is if it is actually a true story or fiction. on the front cover it clearly states 'true story' inside on the 3rd page there is a note saying that the novel is entirely a work of fiction and is only the work of the authors imagination!!? the author regularly makes references to her 'real' story throughout the book!

in terms of the book itself I have found sections of it to be very interesting but have also like other reviewers found it to be a bit mixed up in places going from one idea to another, I also feel that Jenny Angell does not explore her own feelings when with the clients enough for me, you hear a lot about her perception of prostitution as an educated woman but not as someone actually living with it. overall the book is worth reading but I have read better and if anyone works out if its truth or fiction it would be great to know!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprising and Intriguing 19 Aug 2004
By Gail Cooke TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The question posed on the dust cover of Jeanette Angell's memoir is "If you were offered the same choice, are you sure you'd make a different decision?" Provided that you're strapped for cash, the question is whether you would choose to work at a Borders bookstore or a Starbucks coffeehouse for a tad over minimum wage or would you become a call girl earning approximately $140 per hour?
Well, my response before and after reading this intriguing bio was "Hand me a Starbucks apron, please." Personal options aside, Ms. Angell has cogently and thoroughly described the time she spent in juggling her day teaching job and her night work as a paid escort, which she describes as being "a skilled professional possessing an area of knowledge for which there is a demand, and for which the client is willing to pay......"
After earning a Masters in Divinity from Yale and a 1995 doctoral degree in social anthropology, Ms. Angell anticipated joining the faculty of a prestigious university and beginning her climb to tenure. That was not to be the case. Instead she found herself teaching classes at a small Boston area college where she received a semester by semester paycheck. She also found herself co-habiting with Peter, a lowlife who absconded with the contents of their joint checking account.
Determined not to ask her family or the State of Massachusetts for assistance, she began to scan the want ads. Available openings paid the above mentioned minimum wage, which would not begin to cover her bills. Looking further, she found that girls were needed by an escort service run by a woman identified only as Peach. She picked up the phone. Mystified by the fact that Peach didn't want a face to face interview, Ms.
