About the Book

The term 'sex worker' often conjures up images of solitary women standing on streets, soliciting clients. Romantic Encounters Of A Sex Worker, an engaging memoir by Nalini Jameela presents a fascinating story of the streets, the clients and life before and after the encounters. Nalini leads the reader through the nighttime fields and hedges, sleazy lodges hidden on the outskirts of cities, plantations shrouded in darkness, arak shops in the suburbs, vacant construction sites... Her narrative brings to life an array of clients-landlords, forest officers, travelling salesmen, field hands, small-town lodge managers, police officers, supervisors and more, capturing humorously the pomposity, patronising behaviour and pettiness of her clients.
