Louise Brown describes the life of the women, men and children who live in Lahore, the infamous pleasure district in Pakistan. It is a very intimate portrait of life that inevitably reinforces my belief that the vast majority of our lives are determined by the the circumstances of our birth. There is wiggleroom, but a lot less than we like to think.

It took me some time to get into it, and I did not have a problem putting it down from time to time, but it is worth reading. Brown writes honestly about the people in the book as well as her own role in telling their stories.
