Publisher's Summary

How one woman's career went from Play School host to brothel receptionist.

When her acting career stalls, Merridy Eastman lands a challenging real-life role: night receptionist at a Sydney brothel. A long way from the bright lights of a TV studio, she is swept into the high drama of the sex industry. Nothing in Play School or Shakespeare in the Park could prepare her for this. She learns words for items and acts she never imagined. She opens the door to first-timers, old hands, couples and the occasional celebrity. And above all she becomes friends with the women who make their living out of having sex with strangers.

There's a Bear in There (and he wants Swedish) is a funny and fascinating account of a forbidden world, told with a lively sense of the absurd and a rare and forgiving understanding of human frailty.

What an insight to a mysterious profession

If you could sum up There's a Bear in There in three words, what would they be?

Hilarious, sobering, moving

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the easy way the narrative was unfolded and each incident was funnier or more moving than the last.

What about Merridy Eastman’s performance did you like?

I loved her voice and the humour in the way she read of each crisis, reeling from one explosion to the next.

Any additional comments?

I read this book a long time ago and was horrified to find out someone had stolen it. I was verra happy to find I can listen at any time for some humour and pathos.
