Publisher Comments:

A revealing, unflinching, memoir of a university professor by day and callgirl by night

At the age of thirty-four, adjunct professor Jeannette Angell discovered that her boyfriend had not only dumped her but had also taken off with all of her money. Left with crushing debt, Jeannette did what any desperate person would do — she looked for work.

With multiple academic degrees under her belt, she passed up jobs that paid little more than minimum wage and found one that paid her $200 an hour: "Escort — a skilled professional possessing an area of knowledge for which there is a demand."

In this shocking exposé, Angell's eye-opening tour of her experiences — and her decision to sell her body and her companionship for cash — make for a surprising, insightful, and sexy look at just what happens behind hotel doors and in high-rise condos.


Deeply personal and moving, "Callgirl" challenges the commonly-held notions of the world's oldest profession as a pernicious industry peopled by amoral sex addicts.

About the Author

Jeannette Angell grew up in Angers, France. She earned academic degrees at the Université Catholique de l'Ouest and Lesley College for undergraduate work, and Yale University and Boston University for her master's and doctorate-level studies. For three years she led a dual life as a lecturer by day, callgirl by night. She eventually left both academia and the escort business, and since that time has worked exclusively as a writer. Her novels include Légende, Wings, Flight, and The Illusionist. She lives in Boston with her husband and two cats, and is working on a mystery series.
