"The book is an impressive tour de force, a well-crafted work that is part travel guide, part memoir, and in large part a well-reasoned polemic on a subject that’s at the core of our very being. Wienir set out to humanize the sex workers that have for years stood in the windows of the Red Light District of Amsterdam (one of the most fascinating cities in the world), and he does so with an aplomb and verve that is surely going to raise as many eyebrows as it will have heads nodding in approval." -- MANSFIELD FRAZIER, COOL CLEVELAND
