Straight from the Horse’s Mouth by Meryem Alaoui

Jmiaa is 34, a sex worker for almost 15 years, with a 7-year-old daughter, a mother she’s lying to, and a disaster of an ex-husband (she’ll tell you the story). Armed with wine, beer, and a pack of cigarettes, Jmiaa has no pity for herself, nor for anyone else in her working class Moroccanneighborhood. Meryem Alaoui’s debut novel is real and smart, with a touch of hope and the day-time talk show drama that will keep you reading. —Jocelyn
