The Professor and the Prostitute

The Professor and the Prostitute Crime has been greatly on the increase among the lower classes but what strikes me as the strangest thing is that in the higher classes, too, crime is increasing proportionately In one place one hears of a student s robbing the mail on the high road in another place people of good social position forge false banknotes in Moscow of late a whole gang has been captures who used to forge lottery tickets, and one of the ringleaders was a lecturer in universal history then our secretary was murdered from some obscure motive of gain How are we to explain this demoralization of the civilized part of our society Fyodor Dostoyevsky Crime and Punishment.Now, there are nine short stories in this book that all revolve around murder and it was a nice short story for me to read so I was hoping for something great, and sure, some chapters were good but I m giving the overall book one star because the author came across as transphobic and I don t want anything to do with that, so although I could go into heavy detail about the previous stories, I m going to just talk about the problematicness of how the author wrote The Transsexual, the bartender, and the surburban princess Firstly, she mentions how she wrote these stories at the time they happened in her introduction, which could explainexcuse the eye rollthe transphobic mess of this story, but is it so hard to reread over your story and remove the wrong pronouns Take the stick out of your ass and realise that not everyone has the blessing of being born the right gender During this whole chapter, I couldn t help but read it as if she had a tone of disgust in her voice With the others, she seemed very sympathetic towards the victims, but with this case, she didn t seem nearly as kind and it was disgusting.She would often write she he when referring to Diana pre op, and it didn t make sense if someone tells you they re transgender, you use they re prepared pronouns even when talking about the previous gender She was called John She was the son her dad always wanted You don t use She He was called John She He was the son the dad always wanted It s cruel I really feel like the author should take a look at her writing and realise her mistakes and edit them or remove this chapter from the book. A variety of interesting cases covered by crime reporter Linda Wolfe Insightful despite the brevity of each case presentation This book includes the only non fiction version I m aware of, of the lives and deaths of Cyril and Stewart Marcus, the twin gynecologists in the David Cronenberg biopic Dead Ringers. This is a book that doesn t quite stand the test of time Yes, it s a true crime book, but it also includes stories about people who have turned to drugs or had a psychotic break The last story in the book was a manslaughter case about a guy who killed a man because he dented his car not your typical true crime case that is usually profiled this story wouldn t even make the front page news Depression is referred to as Hysteria and the author refers to people given electroshock treatment for it, not Prozac Also the author stereotypes the LGBTQ population as histrionic The first story in the book is about a deadly relationship between a professor and a prostitute and is, in my opinion, the best story of the bunch Ditch the rest. The stories are interesting, but the author s tendency to put herself into the text was off putting and an annoyance I found her pretentious and didn t appreciate how she seemed to think herself an expert in psychology I m not saying she might not be correct in certain cases, but the way she presented her diagnoses made it sound like those were the concrete conclusions I have my doubts Very dated and uninspired, with, surprisingly, many typos. This is not a 5 star bookI tried to give this a 3 star rating and received an error Ditto on 2, 1, and 4 stars The book is okay but it s not a very thoughtful thing just a recitation of facts with some psychological incite I am now dubious of the Goodreads rating system. Really well done interesting cases.

There are several interesting stories, but I shouldn t have read the book at this stage of my life. People do not simply decide to commit murder, or disappear, or engage in illegal activity out of nowhere Through each stories analysis of cases, you learn that people instead usually have something that has been just not QUITE right with them for years The stories in the book are pure madness Some of the stories I wish were a bit longer I would read something from this author again definitely
