About the Author
I've been a writer and been around publishing all my life. I went to Vanderbilt because I wanted to be a writer. Three U.S. Poet Laureates are Vanderbilt alums: Allen Tate (B.A. 1922), Robert Penn Warren (B.A. 1925), and Randall Jarrell (M.A. 1938). Novelists James Dickey (B.A. 1949) and James Patterson (M.A. 1970). At Vanderbilt I published some short stories and one philosophical piece (The Reality of Faith) that was selected for publication my senior year in the Undergraduate Review.

A self-published book, it could have been better constructed. There are some formatting problems within the text. Neither the book cover nor the back makes clear what the book was about. In addition, it reduces the dignity of the story to end each chapter with the small pictures of the woman dangling her bra, as if this were some playful erotic tale. The end of the book was a bit didactic.
However, there is no denying the rich characterization in the book, especially of the hapless Angie who ia in a downward emotional spiral. Angie rushes between sex transactions to clean her house, get Christmas presents for her children, make dinner, pay bills, and wrestle with her conscience. It's almost exactly every working mother;s life, contrasted with the dreary and often cruel life of the illegal sex worker. Masterful buildup to the disaster which finally destroys Angie's life.
Remarkable book by a man about a woman's life.
