Staff Reviews


K is an escort with a heroin addiction who has just returned to New York after working for 7 years in Dubai. In what will be her one last year, she seeks out clients in the world of high finance, she falls in love with a veteran, and she remembers her time spent with the Sheikh, a bomb maker for hire. I was floored by the raw emotion evoked by the directness of Faw’s prose. And the last 5 pages are jaw dropping! - randy's December Staff Pick, 2017
