He apparently taunted his wife with this, and his wife openly discussed this with Cynthia. It is their fault, Cynthia contends, that she now is paid to have sex with men. No where is the concept of free will or personal choice adressed. Cynthia never really admits that although she may have come from a horrible background, that she made the choice to enter into this life.
She does admit that she finds it hard to leave as she is addicted to the material lifestyle her career has brought her. It is a very interesting book though. I recommend it to anyone interested in the real world of prostitution over the Julia Roberts sugar coated view.
It is also wonderful for me, and English Canadian, to have access to modern, relevant literature from the other solitude. This book is written in the Satre-style existential writing that creates a sense of nausea of the prostitute, Cynthia's life. This is a story of a woman who searched for an escape from her oppressive household, but could not escape it because the way she was brought up ended up trapping her mind in her new life and line of work.
A must-read for anyone with a conscience. She worked as a call girl for an escort service while studying literature at university in Montreal. Nelly Arcan aka Isabelle Fortier is screaming out for help in this semi-autobiographical book of reflections, help I guess she never got as she did end up committing suicide 9 years later. Her writing is exquisite and she is able to make rambling sentences sentences that literally go on for pages work very well to convey her morbid and warped outlook on men, women, sex, her parents and life in general.
I felt very sad for her throughout the book. Well, it wasn't a page-turner or an easily readable book despite it's shortness. And sadly I don't think the reason is deepness of the subject or something else. It was mostly based on wicked thoughts of an prostitute. Surely not one of those you would firstly think of.
She writes about how she disgust with the world, men, her family in a melancholic manner. I must confess that I did find interesting her unconventional view of life. And honestly, I underlined and favored a lot of sentences Well, it wasn't a page-turner or an easily readable book despite it's shortness. And honestly, I underlined and favored a lot of sentences in the book.

But that was the only thing I liked about it. As a whole, it was kind of a mess.
It had a suffocating manner, lingering on the same obsessive topics too much. Even though some ideas were unprecedented and interesting like I said, it didn't provoke me to go to the next page.

For a book that is short like this, it had a lot of unnecessary, unending sentences which I had to fight against the urge of skipping them. Sometimes it felt like they were written to show off, to confuse the reader and to arouse the motion that the subject is too deep for the reader. Unfortunately it made it boring rather than perceptive. So, the only thing I received from this book was a different aspect of life from a different mind, with a suffocating, exagerated style. Nov 30, J. Read this in English translation. Knowing the author's fate, I wonder if this was some kind of suicide note.
More essay than novel, and so bitter that I had to put it by for a couple of weeks before I was able to finish it. It's odd to think that she also wrote books on fashion. Appearance was everything to her, and at the sign of the first wrinkle life was finished for her--at least that's my interpretation. A cautionary tale for those obsessed with surface impressions.
This book is difficult to read. I wish I could say it was because of the subject matter, but that's not so. In fact, in terms of character motivation and struggle I found it bland and weak.
It is written in stream of consciousness style. And then it has been translated. If I found it interesting enough, I would perhaps attempt reading the original French version to see if the poor writing was actually poor translation. The novel is completely character driven - typically a genre I prefer. Howeve This book is difficult to read. However this character is a weak facsimile created through stereotypes. It would be of value for someone who believes that all prostitutes are call-girls working out of hotels or diseased streetwalkers.
But if you've any awareness if the realities and issues of current day prostitution, this novel has nothing of value to add and will have you shaking your head at the lost potential of the story.

Her writers voice which is i guess what you review literature on is distinct and prone to run on sentences that some readers find off putting and her prose is engaging. IDK i am not a literature person but i really enjoyed this. This was sort of like a paged monologue full of self-deprecating rhetorical little explosions.
While the majority of what she says is heartrending truth, it was a little bit of a struggle to stay interested. I am excited to see what she puts in a novel. If there was less then 1 star I would rate it just that. Hated it. Personne ne vient me voir. Dieu seul! Maintenant ma vue est bien affaiblie.
Il me faut donc suspendre au moins un temps ce travail des palmes. Nazarena a compris. Transforme-moi en une vive flamme. Il faut orienter les moines-ermites vers la contemplation de Dieu. Dieu est vraiment Tout pour la recluse. Julia ne se trompe pas. Aussi bien, quand elle fut recluse, coupa-t-elle les ponts avec tout le monde. Comment aurait-elle pu juger et condamner? I Jean 5,4.
