"If I'm going to be a prostitute, I don't just want to be a run-of-the-mill one" wrote 17 year old Bruna Surfistinha on her web diary. So begins the vivid account of her three years as a high-class call girl in Sao Paulo. In 2002, Bruna ran away from her middle class family and became a call girl. She also wrote a web diary about her day-to-day adventures turning tricks in the swanky suburb of Paraiso. Insouciant, frank and very funny, Bruna recounts in detail her rendezvous with men, women and couples and reveals what men really want in bed but don't like to ask for at home. "Today I can say that there's no fantasy that scares me because I've already done and seen everything." Bruna also writes wistfully of her estranged family, honestly about her own shortcomings and endearingly about falling in love. The "Diary of a Brazilian Call Girl" is a no-holds-barred account of life in the fast lane of the high-class sex-trade. Imagine Jordan writing a sexed-up Bridgit Jones's Diary with a "Pretty Woman" style happy ending.

Review quote

"Erotic fiction has been languishing on the top shelf for years, but a new generation of woman writers is moving it from the fringes to the literary mainstream" The Observer Magazine, 5th March 2006 "Sex-lit is the new literary phenomenon." The Independent, 21st March 2006 "Shhh sex sells. The British buy books about sex ranging from traditional erotica to practical guides and 'posh porn' published under the guise of art. These writers can be seen as part of the new generation of feminism, with women feeling more at ease writing about sex." The Bookseller, 18th November 2005
