Excerpt from PATIENT WOMEN



One of the themes of PATIENT WOMEN is prostitution, physical and spiritual. Here is a brief excerpt from Chapter 5, "The Mudd Club."

“Around here, there’s no such thing as premature ejaculation. Believe me.”
“With the young ones you just have to do it again.”
“You can suck them off.”
“I’d rather fuck.”
“The less time they’re inside me the better. The way some of them hold you is frightening.”
“Sam sweats.”
“He doesn’t like me.”
“He talks too much.”
“I’d rather listen to them talk than touch them.”
Nora downs her drink. “As long as they don’t ask to see me on the outside, I don’t care. Or try to hold my hand.”
