Summary

Xaviera Hollander's life as a call girl and Madam in the US was captured here in her frank 1971 landmark book. Whether this open account is a valid contribution to positive writing about sex at a time when this was a rare phenomena or an unnecessarily racy telling to titillate, it cannot be denied that it makes compulsive listening especially with the author's own voicing.

Rebellious Autobiography of a Woman

It is Funny I have read this book when I was studying Dutch literature and my father was hating my book choice and we exchanged some discussions.Now 30 years latter I understand more why, but still the book is a revelation as it was then. I recommend this book to everybody that is slightly rebellious and want to throw out tradition.
This book is an very good written erotic autobiography and is not only recommended for Men but also specially for Women.

Deliciously Decadent!

I don't know if Xaviera exaggerated all her conquests,but if she didn't, all I can say is "Ooh La La!" Some of the sex in the book was actually repulsive, but others, somewhat sexy. This lady is the true expert on sex, that's for sure. Great book to listen to while stuck in Austin, Texas traffic!

Cut short

I read the full lenght novel. And this abridged version leaves a lot to be desired. But xaveiria is sexy as hell.

Loved it!

Would you listen to The Happy Hooker again? Why?

I read the book years ago and recently decided to hear the audiobook. Well, I loved the ride back in time when sex and exploration was thriving in NYC. I highly recommend it!
