As a general rule of thumb I like all books about Chicago history because there s really no way to go wrong with tales about our city So I d been wanting to read this book since it was released and finally my most excellent book club the Literary Brats got down to itSo I also think you d really have to screw up to write a bad book about Chicago history This book is about professional screwing and Karen Abbott is some screwball kinda writer How difficult is it to write a great book about shenanigans in Chicago at the turn of the 20th century and the whoring high life Corruption vice horse manure tawdry sex lots of mirrors this should be a book that writes itself I was expecting sordid tales about what went on in the brothels of the Levee District at least in the Everleigh Club which the book centres on concrete histories about the Everleigh sisters who owned the brothel or at least Abbott s opinion on what may have been their rightful biography life histories of the prominent harlots at the club and detailed descriptions of services tenderedWhat you end up getting are cursory chaptered details on the above with too much emphasis on the puritanical fight to eradicate the Levee District and vice in Chicago Sure that is part of the neighbourhood s history but we know how that story ends but why don t we know about Suzy Poon Tang the exotic courtesan from China who arrived in Chicago via Singapore Why aren t we offered an opinion on whether or not Abbott believes the Everleigh sisters were prostitutes themselves before they made their fortune Why is the most extraordinary sexual favour in the book a millionaire patron who enjoys tossing gold coins onto a harlot s pundendum Truly reading this book is like having sex without orgasm as someone pounds a bible on your headTo make matters worse Abbott lifts many passages and facts from a subjective biography of the Everleigh sisters Come to My Parlor And she has no ties to Chicago apart from the fact that a great great grandmother moved here from Eastern Europe and was never heard of again The book launch party was in New York for god s sakes I felt like the book was a chick lit version of a history book and for book clubs who met in cute Bohemian cafes sipping chai teas and noshing on cupcakes not book clubs who meet online and like pizza Still I enjoyed the moments of Chicago life in the 1900s and loved the descriptions of the city then we were some kind of piece of work I appreciate new trivia such as the term lay coming from the Everleigh moniker I also found it extremely fascinating that 100 years later us and our world has changed so much but the basest of human nature remains unchanged and just as repulsive But please can someone just tell me about Suzy Poon Tang
