»I’m by no means an expert on the subject of prostitution, but as a journalist I’ve interviewed several sex workers at length. As a rule memoirs by women who have done the work present the most authentic picture, but with And When She Was Good, Lippman adds the rare novel to a short and essential shelf.«
