This short book is the transcript of an interview with a London prostitute. In it, she reveals the contradictory thoughts and feelings she has about her job, her clients, herself and her prospects of having a normal relationship with a man.

A powerful and honest insight into the mind of a working girl.

I read this and I felt compelled to write something about it but I'm struggling to find the right words. I don't think it's possible for me to emphasise this as much as I want or need to, but this is the story of a girl that has been abused since childhood and has had her mind and thoughts damaged so much that, even after the rapes and the judgement and the bathing in bleach and crying herself to sleep and wanting to push guys off but not being able to and after realizing she'll never trust a guy or make love or even respect her own body, after all that, to say that she loves it and that she gets a buzz out of it - that is the saddest and most sickening thing I've ever heard. Don't for one minute get me wrong; I'm not saddened or sickened by the girl in question - quite the opposite.
I'm sickened by the fact that this girl ended up loving being destroyed because it was the only way she could go on. Tell that to the next person who says the sex trade doesn't hurt anyone!

Insightful, frank and disturbing - this is a must read for anyone interested in the dynamics of the dark side of human interaction.

I hadn't noticed the length so was somewhat surprised when it suddenly finished but I have given my rating based on the content and the cause. If something can make you think and reassess how you look at someone it has done its work, and done it well. Being 'in her own words' made the sentiment immediate and engrossing. The confusion, in her own mind, was palpable and I really wanted to find out more and what happened to this person but in an empathetic manner not a voyeuristic one.

Wow!!!

Very Powerful book.
It really makes me think. And it makes me wonder.
When I remember all the working girls I've known as friends in my life, never did it occur to me that this was what was going on for them in their minds.
That said, in my previous world, I always had respect for working women and I thought I understood the trip they were on. Clearly I didn't, based upon "Q's" words and experiences.

There is such relevance in this book.
Thank you for representing and being so strong Ruth.

This is a really important work which is so necessary amongst all the glamourising Belle de Jour type rubbish we are fed these days. It shows the stark, abusive reality of life as a prostitute. A must read.

I don't need to read Ruth's book to know the horrors. I had friends who had to do it for real. The pain was there for all to see, rich clothes, nice houses and cars never make you feel a real person. My friends would be anything to any man but in private, they cut themselves off from love

Interesting read and not quite what I was expecting.
A little shorter than I anticipated and really quite tragic.

I think this side of the story needs to get out more, it's hard to believe just how much misery there is out there.

Well done, good luck and look forward to your novel!
