  • Charlotte Shane s epistolary memoir about her internal journey as a high paid escort made me curious about the fact I never got to be a boy crazy sex worker Touch and access to my skin was an annoying necessity on the way to financial freedom, but Charlotte Shane seeks intimacy, sexual attention, kindness and genuine tenderness from even crushes out on men who are her clients Charlotte Shane s writing is as stark and prickly as it is lovely, honest and brutally beautiful Her writing, unlike her [...]

  • A modern day Ana s Nin opens her heart and dumps it out on the floor in front of us Intimate reflections on infatuation, love, sex and sex work, and their fallout in a young woman s day to day life Charlotte Shane is on an endless emotional roller coaster and this collection of chronological, diaristic personal essays takes us along with her.At times, the narrator is unlikeable, exhausting and neurotic, self obsessed and navel gazing and she s also intensely relatable and sympathetic Her raw and [...]

  • I wish it hadn t, but this book made me profoundly angry.When you read someone s account of their own experiences, you want to be nodding your head you want generally to feel like they are being frank with you, or at least frank with themself about themself Reading Prostitute Laundry is like being strapped to a chair while someone plays you a propaganda film about their own life.Prostitute Laundry is a published collection of Tiny Letter email blasts taken from over the course of about a year an [...]

  • I had a lot of mixed feelings about Prostitute Laundry, but kept pushing forward for Shane s writing Honest, thoughtful, and engaging, Shane is a master at explaining her thoughts and her heart Passages hit me in the gut, they made me laugh, they made me put the book down to process for a few seconds before I could continue.It was easy to blow through Prostitute Laundry, but I will say that it wasn t always enjoyable After all, it s a collection of Tiny Letters, so the narrative wasn t always li [...]

  • I started reading Charlotte Shane s newsletter in August 2014, so I had read about half of these essays before But reading them consecutively, start to finish, was revelatory Prostitute Laundry changed the way I think and feel about intimacy and sex and love I snapped photos of and revisited so many passages that I almost want them tattooed on my body I was sorry to be hurting the people closest to me but those months were like shattering a glass bottle to get to something exquisite held inside [...]

  • Shane is an incredible writer and has a real skill for discussing topics like intimacy, money, and sex in ways that dodge the tropes surrounding them The first two thirds of the book were especially captivating Things started to drag a little for me in the final third, when the focus shifts to Shane s relationship with a particular man Probably this is a consequence of the format reading the letters as they were originally sent, rather than one after another, probably wouldn t have produced the [...]

  • I can t remember the last time a book affected me this much Maybe never It took me a while to read because I kept having to stop and absorb after each email chapter sometimes in the middle of one Charlotte Shane is an incredible writer and so honest in her self reflection, it almost makes you feel like a liar by comparison This book was so thought provoking and beautiful that I actually read with a pencil for the first time I might go back and read it again It s pretty graphic, so I d skip it if [...]

  • Compelling subject matter and well written, but I think it could have been tightly edited what works for a chronological series of Tiny Letters doesn t necessarily work for a book you read from beginning to end By the time the story thread that proved to be climactic began, I was already losing track of the author s various relationships and it was hard for me to invest in a new one.

  • I felt mostly indifferent to the romantic sexual aspects of this but was fascinated by her fascination with writers I love and have quoted Cixous, Miranda July, Anne Carson, Maggie Nelson and others I have on my to read list Also, appreciative, of that, and of the careful way she talked about the work, even as she was fading out from it, that she was able to leave without burning too many bridges.Her boyfriend s pain at her being emotionally unable to leave sex work felt large and overwhelming a [...]

  • It s a good book and worth reading.Charlotte Shane does not air dirty laundry here she discusses her compulsions and fantasies and pains, often with poignancy and almost always with clean prose I most enjoyed reading, near the middle of the book, as she fell in love with a man and shared why being with him felt so special to her Towards the end, her storytelling felt a bit less coherent and a bit like she had been asking herself, How do I end this poetically, and how do I make my stereotypical [...]

  • Hmm, this was interesting but ultimately I wouldn t recommend There were some parts especially in the middle that were beautifully written passages that really hit you in the gut But there were lots of other parts where basically, our narrator is describing texts and e mails back and forth with her various lovers sex work customers My eyes glazed over just typing that out I mean, I understand how this book wanted to make an argument for how if you CHOOSE to go into sex work, it s a FEMINIST CHOI [...]

  • I found this book alternatingly fascinating and frustrating, which I think is really a testament to Shane s honesty she doesn t sugarcoat anything to make herself appear better The observations she comes to in between trysts about herself, others, sex and love, are genuinely interesting Well worth a read.

  • I haven t come across a book so beautifully and well written as this one for a long time This woman has an astounding infinity for introspection that resonated deeply with me.

  • Charlotte Shane s m moire of sorts, played out over two years of Tiny Letter essays and compiled in book from reveal what it s like from one single person s perspective in the life of high class sex work But don t be fooled this is not a book about sex It s the true story of the constant search for fulfillment and desire to understand oneself, through a frequent stream of self reflection If you want to better understand the perspectives of others and simultaneously hear your same struggles share [...]

  • Not knowing how much of it I had missed out, I obtained the copy It turned out than half of the entire book I had already read by the email subscription, which was a minus to my consumer experience When I learned practically no change from their first draft, I had to admit that I was disappointed Although I love the cover illustration a lot and very sad to have no reference to who was responsible for it , I would have opted e book format if there was The publication possibly set a model of what [...]

  • Oh man, I am so glad I finally finished reading this Charlotte Shane is such a phenomenal writer and her style of introspection is so interesting to read I love books that expand your world view, mind, and heart and that s exactly what I got from this So much of this book feels heart wrenching, but this quote in particular rang so true for me that I had to stop for a moment to absorb it fully d then it occurred to me that maybe even he wouldn t, maybe it was an asymmetrical experience that left [...]

  • There is a way in which the disjointed nature of this book, which is a collection of Tiny Letters originally sent over a period of years, can be frustrating However, in the end it s what makes the book so deeply compelling, what Shane is able to convey in these short bursts is than what many writers do with long formalized narratives I didn t start reading the Tiny Letter until it was almost over and am so glad that she decided to publish all of them via Kickstarter I was unable to put this boo [...]

  • I picked this up after seeing it recommended everywhere Perhaps it s time to give up on book reviews Why did they all give such fawning, over the top praise for this Poorly written, way too obvious, tries too hard with the result of appearing disjointed Everything from the cover art to the lack of editing screams self publishing not in a good way This needed the strong hand of an editor to make it something than a collection of old emails with a wrapper on it It needed another writer entirely t [...]

  • I have mixed feelings about how online blogs and letters hold up in print This time, I think it worked because the book was slightly familiar while still surprising me with revelations I guess I didn t read her mailings as faithfully as I thought I did, and that made a difference in revisiting the material The blend of real life candor, literary license and swinging between elevated base language fits well into my preferred kind of voices as well.

  • Equally fascinating and exhausting.This epistolary novel was started as an e newsletter where Shane shared candidly about her friendships, her relationships, money, society, and yes, sex work She avoids any easy metaphors or narrative cliches her writing can vacillate between intense revelations and meandering introspection Shane has a strong, unique voice and a perspective not seen enough in fiction.

  • Three and a have stars I keep going back and forth between three and four Some of the writing is genuinely incredible in its beauty The structure is a little weak, though, and I couldn t help but wonder just how self aware Shane was of all the little foibles she shared Some of it was obviously intentional, but some seemed subtle than literally anything else in the book It was very interesting, though, and as I said, the writing is generally quite good I do recommend it.

  • This is rough, because it s so good, and because when it was in its tinyletter form it came at a very difficult time in my life I ve rarely been so harmed yet so filled with hope by words as when Charlotte describes her relationship with Max Like, I ve been there, and it didn t end well But maybe for them Anyway I continue to hang on her every word.Oh and I LOVED that she included a bibliography Basically a read this list from the type of friend I do not have.

  • very engaging and shane s writing style is honest and to the point this book is not the least bit erotic, but i would not bring it around your date s parents as i did on accident worth a read alone.

  • Some of the best writing about a person s inner life and emotional life that I ve ever had a pleasure to read Charlotte is one of my favorite contemporary authors and I m so pleased to own this collection of her outstanding newsletter

  • It s rare I feel so connected to someone by their writingShane parses everything out, giving light to to notions I had never once considered Fantastic read, highly recommended.

  • Charlotte Shane perceives and describes how human beings relate to one another or don t as well as any writer, if not better.
