3.0 out of 5 stars Strong Stuff!, December 20, 1999
This review is from: The Dress Lodger (Hardcover)
The story of a pretty,young prostitute who hires a glamourous blue ball gown from a pimp,to attract customers.She is the mother of a baby who was born with his heart outside his chest cavity,and attracts the attention of a young doctor who was involved in the infamous Burke and Hare scandal of body snatching and the murder of indigents to supply cadavers for medical schools. The prose is wonderful and the stench of filth,poverty and death remains in ones nostrils.This is life at its most degrading and the thought that people really lived like this is unbelievable!You'll need a hot bath a a good hair scrub after reading this!

There are still people who live in filth and squalor and poverty around the world, and yes, not much better in some places in the US. Why I find these kind of tales hard to read.
