An astonishingly brave memoir of life in prostitution and its lingering influence on a woman's psyche and life.
Born to mentally unstable parents, Rachel Moran left home at the age of fourteen. Being homeless, she became prostituted to survive. With intelligence and empathy, she describes the fears she and others had working on the streets and in the brothels. Moran also speaks to the psychological damage that accompanies prostitution and the estrangement from one's body. At the age of twenty-two, Moran escaped prostitution. She has since become a writer and an abolitionist activist.
