Description - The Girlfriend Experience by Alecky Blythe
We are eavesdropping in a brothel. Not the plush pleasure-dome of popular imagination but a down-to-earth establishment in which the `girls' (mostly mature women) behave more like hairdressers. Appointments are made by phone and scrupulously adhered to. Clients' preferences are recorded and fulfilled within strictly defined limits, and their peculiarities gossiped about when they've gone. But the girls are all, deep down, looking for true love and nurturing glimmers of passion beyond their natural point of extinction. The result: broken
hearts all round.
