Belle couldn't find a job after University. Her impressive degree was not paying her rent or buying her food. But after a fantastic threesome with a very rich couple who gave her a ton of money, Belle realized that she could earn more than anyone she knew--by becoming a call girl. The rest is history. Belle became a 20-something London working girl--and had the audacity to write about it--anonymously. The shockingly candid and explicit diary she put on the Internet became a London sensation. She shares her entire journey inside the world of high-priced escorts, including fascinating and explicit insights about her job and her clients, her various boyfriends, and a taboo lifestyle that has to be read to be believed. The witty observations, shocking revelations, and hilarious scenarios deliver like the very best fiction and make for a titillating reading experience unlike any other.

Christy Valentine, December 23, 2007 (view all comments by Christy Valentine)
Belle de Jour's first book is a collection of her blog postings about her life as a call girl in London, and it's wonderfully frank and frankly wonderful. Belle is a deeply insightful writer who provides a look into the life of a sex worker and all it's up's and down's. Her descriptions of experiences with the agency and her clients will both shock and make you laugh, usually at the same time. There is plenty of relationship drama with all her male friends (mostly ex-lovers), the enigmatic Dr. C, and especially her on-again, off-again paramour The Boy. It's really the most delectable type of high-brow chick lit around-- and even that seems an insult, as Belle's work far surpasses the standards the genre entails.
