Playing the Whore by Melissa Gira Grant

Jessica Oliver
2020 Orbit Writing Around Pynchon  
Melissa Gira Grant's latest book examines the denial of basic labour rights for sex workers, and the external factors behind this, including the attitudes of the police, media and politicians. The book is a sharp critique of the sensationalist treatment of the industry and behaviors of establishment figures that proves timely in the wake of Amnesty's recently declared support for global decriminalization.
