Three Plastic Rooms

by Petra Hůlová

Translated by Alex Zucker
Introduction by Peter Zusi

A foul-mouthed Prague prostitute muses on her profession, aging and the nature of materialism. She explains her world view in the scripts and commentaries of her own reality TV series combining the mundane with fetishism, violence, wit and an unvarnished mixture of vulgar and poetic language.
