This book starts slowly but builds into a series of compelling life stories explaining how and why African women end up working as prostitutes in Europe. It is an argument for working toward global equity so that all women can have choices we take for granted. I am glad I read it but I almost rejected it because I am so sick of the endless array of women as prostitutes in the arts.
Promising, but in the end, this book disappoints. The stories of the four women are very similar and Unigwe comes close to portraying them as passive victims.
Bought this book at the famous City Lights bookstore in San Francisco. Great storytelling. The characters are well-developed, and their stories are tragic, yet remarkable. Austin Public Library needs to secure more books from this author.
