I looked at the glaze of headlights, the windshields of the cars coming in the opposite direction: a series of trapezoids with the silhouette of a man single driver.A pull up in front of me; I leaned over and opened the door, slipped intoThe smell of the stranger in the carA middle-aged man looking at me”Hello,” I said.How are you doing?Kate Holden is used to being summed up at a glance: graduate arts, passionate about history, middle-class girl, dreamer and innocent.But she’s a young woman who understands better than most secrets that people keep hidden.In Ma Peau, follows her journey from her reputation as a “good girl” in the trunk and suburbs of Melbourne to devouring her from heroin rides and the sex industry.It’s a story of survival and resourcefulness; it’s an unshakeable story of looking at the consequences of addiction.Holden travels from a well-protected life in her love of family at home to a world of sex for money – a pathetic over alleyways, back seats and brothels.More than a bold and convincing story, Ma Peau is a splendid announcement of a new great literary talent.
