Excellent memoir of childhood deprivation, prostitution sexual abuse, 19 Jun 2013
The author is an accomplished writer whose metaphors are poignant and connects to the reader at a real human level. Ms. Moran is a national treasure, a brave courageous woman who took a look at the global issue of sex abuse inherent and is what prostitution is. This book is a testimony of human resilience. This high quality memoir bears all the horrors of prostitution married to sexism and gender based violence and compelled me without a doubt to back the 'Turn off the Red Light' campaign.
