Sarah Broadhurst's view...

You have probably caught some of the coverage for this book. It first appeared as a web diary and then there was much speculation as to whom the author might be. To date she remains anonymous, even through the book deal. Smart girl. What she does here is to expand on her web diary and give more on her life, her ‘calling’ and her origins. It’s very explicit, very chatty and not the sort of thing you want to read in one sitting for it’s a tad repetitive.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

The Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl by Belle de Jour

Belle de Jour is the nom de plume of a high-class call girl working in London. This is her story.

From the summer of 2003 to the autumn of 2004 Belle charted her day-to-day adventures on and off the field in a frank, funny and award-winning web diary. Now, in her Intimate Adventures, Belle elaborates on those diary entries, revealing (among other things) how she became a working girl, what it feels like to do it for money, and where to buy the best knickers for the job. From debating the literary merits of Martin Amis with naked clients to smuggling whips into luxury hotels, this is a no-holds barred account of the high-class sex-trade, and an insight into the secret life of an extraordinary woman.

Reviews

'Belle is a natural-born blogger, her style is witty and compact, with the right mixture of intimacy and disassociation . . . Her entertainment value is huge . . . because she writes about sex with a mind behind it' The Time
