More About the Author
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.

Evelyn's book, Incapitated, recounts her relationship with a bizarre financier who I imagine is identified by a made up name -- Mitchell.Read more ›
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.

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
