What people are saying about Whores on the Hill:
“(R)emarkable first novel…an honest, poignant, beautifully written story about teenage sex, from a young woman’s point of view…The book is raw and explicit, but it has a kind of sweetness, too, as the girls, innocent in so many ways, struggle toward adulthood. Curran’s writing is fresh and authentic, with a singular rhythm that perfectly suits her subject.”
“Bitter, funny, wise and poignant, these risk-takers grow up the hard way and their toughness is only a cover-up for the pain of making the trip from girlhood to womanhood without fracturing their essential hearts of gold.”
