Interesting story of a young, naive women being compelled into the seedier side of life by lack of money and manipulative contacts. She embraces elements of this life for a while, sometimes seemingly enthusiastically, before becoming ultimately disillusioned and yearning for a more traditional set up. Descriptive racy scenes before the reader can titilate but are somewhat repetitive. Gives a reasonable feel of the time and its social mores. A quick read, that you can comfortably dip in and out of without losing the plot.
