At the Hemisphere Institute she was called Mopsy. At the Jasmine Escort Agency, and to most of the men they sent her to, she was Dr. Lauren Slaughter. She found the work similar in many respects; and when people (day or night) asked her what she did the rest of the time, she said simply, “Research.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ainsley | 3/14/2013

    " Good Paul Theroux. I like the combination of two stories about double lives "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 7/1/2012

    " Paul Theroux is one of my favorite authors, but this book was confusing. I hadn't realized it was two short stories and when it crossed over in the middle I couldn't figure out what was going on or what happened to the heroine. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jo Anne | 6/8/2012

    " Well written but depressing. Couldn't find a character I could like. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 5/31/2012

    " Read this long ago, but it has stayed with me like a really good meal eaten outdoors in a foreign city, by water, lanterns swaying, and flirting with a near stranger. Sexy, exotic, intriguing. Greenian, but lacks the bottom note of Greene. Oh well. A great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruta Sevo | 3/19/2012

    " Fun reading, fascinating worldly characters, very colorful and you get a good sense of secret lives in London and other places abroad. These are two shorter pieces published together. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leonard Pierce | 8/29/2011

    " I bought this because of the movie where Sigourney Weaver played a crazy hooker. Probably not the best introduction to Theroux. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moira Harrington | 8/21/2011

    " First fictional work by him that I've read. I was intrigued and pleased enough by his writing to try some other novels. These were tightly drawn thriller-type work, which I generally don't appreciate so the fact that I liked them -- the Dr. Slaughter story better and the Dr. Demere one -- is a plus. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Sanow | 8/3/2011

    " The second story's a bust, but "Dr. Slaughter" is twisted in all the right ways. You'll want to take a shower after reading it. Made into a strangely inert movie version starring Sigourney Weaver. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary-Ellen | 5/25/2011

    " Read this book to try and figure out why Sigorney Weaver would want to play the role of the main character. The novella was better than the play, but I still do not understand why Weaver took the part. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jo | 4/12/2011

    " Well written but depressing. Couldn't find a character I could like. "

    " This book made me think people should write more openly dirty, depraved stories. They're just so fun to read. "
