Read full description of the books Das rote Band: Roman:

A slammerkin, as is noted on the cover is a loose dress, a loose woman. I love this book so much that I actually couldn't bear to read the end the first time around. Gender and poverty is really well explored. I love the way the main character becomes a prostitute--she wants to buy a ribbon, she can't afford it, so she agrees to kiss this peddler of ribbons and ends up sort of getting raped (that word just seems so harsh even though it's exactly what happened.) Everything is just perfect--that it's only a ribbon, that she only agrees to the kiss and then of course that the need for material things continues, and the question looming over all of it--why is there such income disparity that she can't get these things, has very few avenues to get them. All of this is done in such a way that you see she does have alternatives and basically does appreciate the finer things a little much. Also Emma Donoghue is an excellent stylist.

My one caveat that I have with all of Donoghue's books is that she seems incapable of depicting heterosexual relationships in a positive light and it's always the homosexual ones that seem the most natural and real. But given the way women were treated at the time--well, it just seems like it would be hard to have a positive relationship with a man because they...I'm having too much trouble finishing this sentence, I'll cut it off here.
