I did read this book though. Everytime I go to the library these days, I stop by the biography section and think 'hmm, wouldn't mind reading that one.. or that one..' and end up leaving with a pile of children's books instead (latest which didn't capture my interest: Magician's Nephew, Back to the Divide and Inkspell). But in the end, this time, I came home with Call Me Elizabeth. It was a very interesting read, but I'm still not sure what to make of it. I'm sure she wanted to shed a different light on prostitution (escort, whatever), but it seemed to condone it a little too much. Sure, she mentioned the health risks, and safety issues, the sleaziness of it, but more as a sidenote I felt, and I wonder if this is me judging her? It was a sad story though, and you could tell she loved her children very much, but my thoughts are still jumbled on this one.
