About the Author

Janet Capron is a writer based in New York City. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Columbia University. Blue Money is a memoir based on her time as a prostitute in the early 1970s.


"Capron writes with the fearless, experiential drive of a Beat poet...This intense, electrifying memoir explores a life of prostitution in 1970s New York City." ―Shelf Awareness
"Blue Money is nothing less than a total reboot of a genre hitherto dominated by the male 'bad boy' writer. Perfect that this story takes place in the free-wheeling 1970s because it brilliantly recalls the voices of that era's literary enfant terribles― Exley, McGuane, Donleavy― and in the process creates something thoroughly new and uniquely feminine. A marvelous debut!" ―Helaine Olen, author of Pound Foolish
"A bracing personal narrative set against the backdrop of a simpler New York." ―The National Book Review
"What BLUE MONEY suggests is that curiosity and desire aren't anything to be ashamed of, they should be cultivated, and enjoyed." ―PLAYBOY
"Those who appreciate trigger warnings may not appreciate this book. But for anyone else, Capron's eloquent and electric memoir of radical feminism, avid prostitution, and the wish for old-fashioned love will be hard to put down." ―Daniel Bergner, author of What do Women Want?
"I was struck by how wonderfully Blue Money paints such a sharp picture of that time." ―Kenneth Bowser, filmmaker and writer and director of American Masters? Phil Ochs: There but for Fortune
?A modern-day Moll Flanders... terrifically entertaining and brilliantly written." Phillip Lopate
