One part Girl, Interrupted, one part Leaving Las Vegas, all parts brutally frank and entirely truthful, THE GIRL YOU DON'T BRING HOME TO MOTHER tells the unabashed story of one very good girl gone very, very bad. With a Bachelor of Arts in anthropology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and a Master of Communication from Emerson College, Marylin Jameston was on the path to be anything but a working prostitute.
But like so many sex workers in the profession today, Marylin experienced a rash of acting out and other harmful behaviors that made her feel unwanted, unloved, and unworthy of anyone's affection. Suicidal and frantic, at 27 Marylin entered into prostitution, working as a call girl for 5 years in the Boston area. She retired from the sex trade at 32 and started a more vigorous treatment program for her bipolar disorder, which had gone undiagnosed for 10 years.
In the process, Marylin lived a life few of us can ever imagine, let alone survive. From pimps to madams, massage parlors to brothels, in calls to out calls, Marylin has seen, done, and heard it all. And now she is ready to "tell all" in her frank and touching memoir, THE GIRL YOU DON'T BRING HOME TO MOTHER.
