Summary

"All the men I did get to know, every single man of them, has filled me with but one desire: to lift my hand and bring it smashing down on his face. But because I am a woman I have never had the courage to lift my hand. And because I am a prostitute, I hid my fear under layers of make-up." --Excerpt This is a new edition of the best-selling novel with a specially commissioned new Foreword by Miriam Cooke.
