Intent on wrapping up the thesis for his doctorate in anthropology at UC San Diego, Gilmore Crowell had spent the last eight years studying sex workers in Tijuana. The last thing he needed was the news that some big shots at the University wanted him out of the program. According to Crowell, it wasn’t his fault. The sex workers would feed him information that would automatically make UC San Diego’s thesis committee approve him for the doctorate he desired. In a bid to conclude his research, Crowell had decided to change his strategy. He found himself setting up a website for the prostitutes, spending money on them, having sex - something he had sworn never to do - and to his horror, doing almost everything else besides. Get yourself The Melancholy Strumpet Master by Zeb Beck to discover more.
Zeb Beck’s The Melancholy Strumpet Master will have lovers of comedy novels laced with a selection of weirdos, pundits, inmates, pompous administrators, lazy cops, overworked students, quirky therapists, and sex workers turning the pages from cover to cover. Beck breathes life into the scenes with vivid descriptions, imparting a dramatic touch to them. It only gets better with the nuanced and witty portrayal of the hectic and almost absurd way of life of the twenty-first century. This was especially accentuated by the brilliant crafting of the amazing protagonists. Beck juxtaposes their complex qualities, capturing their emotions along with it. All this culminated in a hilarious read and an intriguing plot. There is adventure, suspense, drama, and so much more in this book.
