Book Description

INCAPITATED is the true story of a young woman’s degradation into the dark underbelly of a world ruled by sex, power, money, and control. It spans 15 months of Ms Dahab’s life when she found herself becoming emotionally and sexually paralyzed by one of New York’s wealthiest bachelors. As he fell prey to the darkness of his own self loathing, depression, and alcoholism, she found herself discovering the darker depths of her own soul. Trading the sex acts performed by other young women as currency, Ms. Dahab struggled to maintain her sanity as she fought to protect herself from the predatory prowess of her keeper. Appearing as a pampered concubine to all who observed the two together, what is revealed beneath the surface is the real tale of the author’s Dantenian descent into sexual hell.

Editorial Reviews


"Dahab is fearless as a writer, and she skillfully navigates the fine line between pornography and art.  To read her story is to catch a glimpse of a rare bird.  Her descriptions...seduce the reader into wanting to experience more..."  -- Maria Housden, bestselling author of Hannah's Gift: Lessons from a Life Fully Lived"

From the Back Cover

"Dahab is fearless as a writer, and she skillfully navigates the fine line between pornography and art.  To read her story is to catch a glimpse of a rare bird.  Her wry sense of humor and poetically precise phrasing give voice to experiences, disturbing and sensual, that others have no words for.  Her descriptions of the sights and smells of some of the world's greatest cities, including the sumptuous meals that she and Mitchell share, seduce the reader into wanting to experience more, even as her relationship with Mitchell becomes darker and more twisted."  -- Maria Housden, bestselling author of Hannah's Gift: Lessons from a Life Fully Lived"

2.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't get into it. March 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just couldn't get into it. It was really dark and I found myself unable to relate to the main character even from the beginning. I didn't like her falling into bed with jerk and being easily led around by a abuser. She had no substance.

2.0 out of 5 stars Did not finish it February 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After trying to read this for several weeks, I finally decided to just give up. I just kept asking myself...what is the point of all of this?? There is a difference between being a submissive and being abused. It wasn't believable at all and I just really couldn't see the point in finishing it. It may have gotten better later, but I just really didn't care. I didn't like Mitchell at all and I couldn't understand why the woman...and I honestly can't even remember her name...but why would she tolerate this? There is a a reason that a submissive is a submissive...usually. It is a power up control to someone and having them take it and take care of you...among other things :)But this was not the case. Mitchell was verbally and physically abusive and she really got nothing but cash out of it. So basically she pimped herself for money. NOt a fan of this book at all and only read 25-30% of it and deleted it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible. February 19, 2013
By Vicki
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I couldn't even get half way through this book, which is a shame. To a certain extent, it reads well and there is enough curiosity to continue, but the book puts me in a bad mood. I'm not sure if it's because of the lack of depth with the characters or the absurdity of them. I give up. This story has about as much substance as mildew. (Wow, that was kind of mean. I told you that it puts me in a bad mood.)

3.0 out of 5 stars CONFUSED!! February 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I kept reading thinking I would eventually get some answers but......NO!!! I have so many questions after reading this........I do hope there are more books to come so I can get the answers to my questions. With that being said, this book made me mad and sad. I cried for her and for Mitchell. I hated him and her but found myself cheering them on. Hoping they would get away from each other and get the help they both needed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cici February 12, 2013
By Cici
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I literally wish I had never read this book. Its has attached itself to my psyche and I just can't wrap my mind around this whole story. This book made me so depressed and I truly hope its not a true story. I cannot understand why someone would subject themselves to this kind of treatment, eventually a basic survival instinct would kick in right? If you can disassociate yourself from something you're reading give it a try, but if you're like me and you become too immersed in a story just skip it for your own preservation of sanity.

4.0 out of 5 stars I would have liked to read the sequels Ms December 24, 2014
By Dr. R.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This memoir--a promising first effort--is a harrowing account of her abuse at the hands of a rich and powerful sadist and of the betrayal by her family. The book is engrossing in its vivid detail and captures the warped and troubled personality of her abuser. If the account is entirely true, I'm shocked by the behavior of the people in the book whom I know. As is the case with almost all such memoirs, however, I found it difficult to determine when the author's account was distorted by her own point of view.

I would have liked to read the sequels Ms. Dahab was working on. Unfortunately, she died recently, and I doubt that her heirs will want to see any more of her life story in print.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good freshman effort. November 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In the interest of full disclosure, I am acquainted with the author, so my impetus to read this was curiosity to see what she could produce. I approached the book with some trepidation, as I wasn't that impressed with the promotional blurb that I saw. I hope Dahab didn't write it. It seemed rather sensational and trashy.

However, within a minute of starting to read the book proper, I was impressed and gripped. It really is one those reads that you can't put down. Dahab certainly has a faculty with prose and the ability to spin a good tale. There was some eye opening stuff for me, someone who has more miles on the clock than the author. If you aren't prepared for some funkily provocative stuff sexually, you may want to avoid this one. It is a fascinating story, just on the edge of unbelievable that someone could go through the events contained therein. The only time my credulity was strained was an episode set in the middle of the book, which just didn't seem to make sense legally, but I'm no expert in the law, so I could be wrong.

I had a couple of quibbles with some background facts presented. 1. It doesn't take three hours to drive from NYC to New Canaan, and 2. there is no road between Melbourne and Sydney called the Coastal Highway. There may be other errors but I am not an expert on everything, just most things. The fun for Dahab would be doing some research for her next book by maybe going to more of the places mentioned and making sure all those facts are right, instead of checking things from an armchair like me on Google. Overall, a good installment in the shopping / effing / and traveling genre. Given the plot of this book, the challenge of a follow up may be difficult, but Dahab has the raw tools of a good and compelling novelist at hand.

More About the Author

Evelyn C. Dahab lives in New York City's vibrant East Village after 8 years of living alone on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Born and raised on the south shore of Long Island, she left home at the age of fifteen to live for a year as an exchange student in Ecuador. Upon returning to the United States, she spent a year reorienting to American culture and language before heading to university at the age of seventeen. Her experiences in Ecuador inspired her field of study, and she graduated in 2002 from Columbia University's Barnard College with a B.A. in Political Science with a concentration in Third World Political Development.

Since graduation, Ms. Dahab's career has exposed her to many life experiences, perspectives, and disciplines. She has worked as a nanny, personal trainer, fitness model, hedge fund administrator, legal recruiter, financial news show anchorwoman, wine and food critic and consultant under the moniker "oenogal," and actress with a walk-on role on the CBS soap opera The Guiding Light.

Currently, Ms. Dahab co-owns "Lucey's Lounge," a cocktail bar that will open on March 9, 2012 in Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY. Her real passion, though, is travel, and her passport, nearly in tatters, reflects a life on the move. Writing keeps her grounded when wanderlust pulls at her roots.

INCAPITATED is the first book of a memoir trilogy, which she hopes will serve as a revealing commentary on the human experience while casting a dark shadow on the pursuit of sex, power, money, and control.


Topic From this Discussion
Incapitated is not a word
I, too, wondered about it, so I looked it up. It is a neologism coined by the author in 2008. It means "to alter another's perception of reality through the use of mind control or force." If you're worried that it is an indication of bad editing, it isn't. I am very picky about... Read More
