Working

Dolores French, Author Dutton Books $18.95 (287p) ISBN 978-0-525-24670-1
Out of curiosity, and because she was bored with her middle-class life and job, French, at 27, became a prostitute. Here, with the aid of Lee ( One by One , etc.), she reviews her career and describes clients she served in Atlanta and abroad, including a period in Puerto Rican brothels. Her activities, recounted in explicit, sordid and occasionally humorous detail, provided her with independence and affluence. Now a political activist on behalf of prostitutes' rights, and a prominent figure on talk shows and at hookers' conventions, French also works as a consultant to the Centers for Disease Control and the National Task Force on Prostitution.
