Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Rumoured to be based on personal experiences, this is quite a tale. Sexually explicit, highly instructional and charmingly tongue-in-cheek, it is the frank diary of a newly engaged, sweet copy-editor battling with wedding plans and pending in-laws while earning a hard crust as a high-class prostitute. Both fascinating and fun.

Comparison: Belle de Jour, Catherine M.
Similar this month: None.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Diary of a Manhattan Call Girl by Tracy Quan

This is the diary of Nancy Chan, busy career girl, in her thirties, newly engaged and trying to balance job and romance. But Nancy is a high-class call girl, a fact her banker fiance, Matt does not know (he thinks sheâs a copy editor) and Nancy wants to keep it that way.

With one foot in the bedrooms of her rich and demanding clients and one in the world of her fiancé and his family, Nancy demonstrates, in her inimitable fashion, that if you know the dance, you can keep those two worlds from colliding. At least for a while.

This wonderfully intelligent, sexually frank, rollicking novel gives us fresh insight into the machinations and politics of being an expensive call girl in the modern world. Quan pulls no punches, gives no apologies, and has written one of the best and most honest books yet on the topic.
