ZENITH HOTEL BYO OSCAR COOP – PHANE”S
I WOULD LIKE TO THANK GRAY AT ARCADIA BOOKS FOR SENDING THIS COPY TO REVIEW 
THE BLURB 
I m a street prostitute. Not a call girl or anything. No, a real street whore, with stiletto heels and menthol cigarettes. Narrator Nanou gives a detailed account of her day, from the moment she wakes up with a foul taste in her mouth, in her sordid rented room, until the minute she crawls back into her bed at night to sleep. Interwoven with her story are portraits of her clients. Oscar Coop-Phane invents an astonishing cast of original and deeply human characters losers, defeated by the world around them who seek solace in Nanou s arms. Original and moving, this short book deftly paints a world of solitude and sadness, illuminated by precious moments of tenderness and acts of kindness.
WHAT I SAY 
The book very small but tell you a very unique story it very good 
Nanou to me a very street wise girl she seem very lonelier but so do her customers she only every been into being a street prostitute to make money and to live she seem very lost she hates her job but she got no choice in the matter so get to work to live 
The book chapters take on a client in each one they go into detail about there lives 
The book very raw i was hooked it the story i wanted to hear more about her world 
To me Nanou was just a normal girl trying to live she tell you what see feel like what she can taste in her mouth after a working day she just get up performs a service and carry on she tell you all it all her life experience in her world it not a nice world the book very well written it very raw you can feel the sensitivity and passion you can tell the men just want company a life somethings it very sad 
The book not a book i would normal pick up but i did enjoy it very small a compact a very quick read
 
4 stars read enjoy pass on
