Format: Hardcover
When you first start reading this book, it's easy to get bogged down by the author's introduction in which he explains enthnoanthropology. You might be excused if you think that the author just wanted to go to Tijuana and get some strip club/hooker action. However, once he gets into the interviews with the sex workers, you are as sucked in as you read about the lives of these sex workers. Some give the regular spiel but others are honest about their world. Ultimately this book gives a stark picture of humanity at its worst and most desperate.

Definitely worth the price.

As a sociology student I was surprised to what extent that Michael Hemmingson put his life on the line for the sake of research. There are some minor editing flaws I picked up at times. Zona Norte takes you into the world of sex workers and exotic female dancers within Tijuana, and Southern California. The book starts off academic in nature(and you think this is going to be a long read), but Hemmingson quickly moves along and shares details from his point of view. Since, this is referred to as an auto/ethnographic study the reader is exposed to Hemmingson's motivations for doing research within this realm. I have a fascination with the dark underworld of the sex industry. Hemmingson's work has provided some food towards my appetite within the safety of my imagination.
