Book Description Plume, 2015. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Praise for Some Girls : "SOME GIRLS would have been riveting even if Lauren had merely illuminated the murky world of high-class prostitution. The fact that she does so with humor, candor, and a reporter''s gimlet eye is an added delight. But Lauren also reveals how and why a middle-class kid found herself in such a line of work--and how she got out."Jennifer Egan, author of Look at Me and The Keep "A heart-stoppingly thrilling story told by a punk rock Scheherazade, Lauren writes with such lyrical ease - the book is almost musical, an enduring melody of what it is to be a woman."Margaret Cho "SOME GIRLS takes you into a world so dramatic, it seems almost too outrageous to be true. Lauren lifts the veil on harem life and shows us the gritty truth of life in fantasy-land."Lily Burana, author of Strip City "Catfights, mad cash, priceless jewels -- welcome to the sultan's harem. What starts out juicy quickly turns soulful in this elegantly crafted, multi-layered stunner of a memoir. A spell-binding tale of one woman's exotic search for identity and true love."-- Rachel Resnick, author of Love Junkie "Lauren tells the story straight, without much moralizing, but the corruption of the aristocrats, the powerlessness of the women and the destitution of the life outside the harem speaks for itself."LA Times "[Lauren] is a deft storyteller and not afraid to provide candid descriptions of her life. A tight, sleek narrative. What's astounding is that Lauren writes without shame, confronting every hard truth. [Some Girls is] too good to read just once." Miami Herald "Lauren's story is not one of perpetual gullibility and woman done wrong incidents, but rather an entertaining.and hopeful tale about one young woman's endless quest to find herself. A beautiful, sweeping epic."Bookslut "Lauren is a gifted writer. Compelling." Library Journal "Lauren is a natural storyteller. She has a gift for metaphor, an eye for the odd detail." LA Weekly "Lauren lifts the veil off her secret harem life, sharing vivid and explosive details." The New York Post Praise for PRETTY: "Jillian Lauren writes with stunning, furious authenticity about self-destruction and the bitter road toward redemption. "Pretty" will knock the breath right out of you."Janelle Brown, author of All We Ever Wanted Was Everything "PRETTY is the real deal, a harrowing journey from darkness to light to real life. Bebe's unflinching, street-level search for salvation absolutely floored me, and Jillian Lauren's writing shimmers throughout with wit and authenticity."Antoine Wilson, author of The Interloper "Pretty is the not-so-pretty, utterly riveting, non-stop frantic and compulsively readable saga of Bebe Baker, a heroine who knows her way around a serious binge. Jillian Lauren renders the taste and feel of wretched excess - be it sex, drugs, food, or Los Angeles - with a savage veracity and style all her own. The prose, at times, drives with such ferocious urgency that the words seem not so much written as willed onto the page. Pretty stands out as a triumph of survival testimony. The author, plainly, is lucky to have survived - but the reader is luckier. Jillian Lauren is the real deal."Jerry Stahl, author of Permanent Midnight "BeBe Baker knows the ugliness of the world, yet finds plain truths in the multicultural pageantry of eastern Los Angeles. She is the kid you want to protect, the girl you'd definitely be friends with, the obliviously fetching female that all the boys lovean unlikely, unforgettable hero with a forever-searching soul. Pretty 's true beauty, however, is the author's ability to lovingly capture life's microscopic detailsright down to the cuticlesand offer them back up to us as communion."Shawna Kenney, author of I Was a Teenage Dominatrix and Imposters.
