A foul-mouthed Prague prostitute muses on her profession, aging and the nature of materialism. She explains her world view in the scripts and commentaries of her own reality TV series combining the mundane with fetishism, violence, wit and an unvarnished mixture of vulgar and poetic language.
The book immediately stormed the best-seller list in the Czech Republic. In 2007 the novel was awarded with the Jiří Orten Prize. In addition, the book has been adapted into a play.
