Gill Books to publish Rachel Moran's book, Paid For, this April


05-04-2013 14:00

For years, this author experienced nothing but powerlessness. She was a prostitute. She was homeless. She was an addict. In Paid For, her remarkable memoir, she has faced facts, uncovered hurt and taken a cold, hard look at the experiences that shaped her.


In finally telling her story, she has achieved the ultimate power of all. The truth. In her own words. In her own name.


From a textbook dysfunctional home life, Rachel Moran always felt utterly set apart from mainstream society. A troubled family life led to educational disadvantage and adolescent homelessness – a familiar story and one that primed her for life as a prostitute.


Stories of innumerable others are echoed within hers, but Rachel Moran stands out for the remarkable strength that saw her leave that world behind, get back to education and spend ten years writing a truly original, painfully honest account of the realities of her experience.


Rachel’s story exposes the violent, lonely, relentlessly exploitative reality of prostitution. In writing this book she does a great service by shining a light on a dark part of Irish society and showing it for what it really is.


Paid For: My Journey Through Prostitution by Rachel Moran is published by Gill Books on Friday, 12 April 2013, priced at €16.99.
