Read full description of the books:
Ming and Beata share neither the same language nor cultural background, yet their stories are remarkably similar. Both are single mothers in their thirties and both came to Britain in search of a new life: Ming from China and Beata from Poland. Neither imagined that their journey would end in a British brothel.
In this chilling exposé, investigative journalist Hsiao-Hung Pai works undercover as a housekeeper in a brothel and unveils the terrible reality of the British sex trade. Many workers are trapped, some are controlled – the lack of freedoms this invisible strait of society suffers is both shocking and scandalous and at odds with the idea of a modern Britain in the twenty-first century.
Adapted into the Channel 4 documentary ‘Sex: My British Job’ by Nick Broomfield.
Hsiao-Hung Pai is an acclaimed Taiwanese-born writer and journalist. She is the author of Chinese Whispers: The True Story Behind Britain's Hidden Army of Labour, which was shortlisted for the Orwell Prize in 2009, and Scattered Sand: The Story of China's Rural Migrants. Pai’s report on the Morecambe Bay tragedy for the Guardian was adapted into Nick Broomfield’s film Ghosts. She lives in London.
