The Austin Chronicle


Reviewed by Shawn Badgley, July 16, 2004, Books


by Jeannette Angell

(Permanent Press, $26, August)

Angell, whose usual beat is passable historical fiction, remembers her days as a university lecturer by day and a prostitute by night. The memoir, as interesting as it is, serves mainly as framework for an attack on so many societal assumptions. A Book Sense 76 pick, Callgirl will likely explode onto the book-club network.
