    Lời người dịch: Năm 2003, nước Anh sôi lên vì những dòng nhật ký cá nhân trên mạng của Belle de Jour, một người tự nhận là “gái gọi ở London”. Chỉ bằng những đoạn nhật ký hài hước kể chuyện khách làng chơi, cô đã tạo nên một làn sóng độc giả truy cập blog của mình. Đồng thời, với sự nặc danh hoàn toàn, Belle de Jour cũng gợi ra vô số những nghi vấn về thân phận thật của cô. Có người nói “Gái gọi London” chỉ là trò bịp của một nhà báo rỗi việc… Bất chấp những nghi ngờ ấy, nhật ký của Belle de Jour đã được xuất bản dưới cái tên “Belle de Jour: Những cuộc phiêu lưu thân mật của một cô gái gọi London” và giành giải thưởng của tờ báo Guardian đầy uy tín. Là một người đã từng xuất bản nhật ký, tôi tìm thấy ở Belle de Jour nhiều điều thú vị và đôi chút đồng cảm. Xin trích dịch một phần của cuốn nhật ký lạ lùng này.

    You're a bright graduate keen on Renaissance Drama and Martin Amis. You've moved down to London to seek your fortune but the endless office temping and rejection letters weren't what you were expecting. What do you do? Like so many alarmist newspaper stories you turn to prostitution, of course! When Belle catalogued her exploits in an anonymous online diary she caused frenzied speculation as to her identity. It's impossible not to read the collected book as a set of clues, but that's to undermine its readability. A good diarist draws you in through intrigue or through empathy. Belle does both. On the one hand she gives outsiders a rare gaze into the upmarket sex trade. On the other she presents a personal life so typical that it can be appreciated from the inside, looking out. Everyday middle-class London is caught with its trousers down.(Kirkus UK)[/TD]

    Game over? Belle is starting to wonder if she should call time on the call girl business...get a day job, a life free from secrets and have a 'normal' relationship with the Boy. But will Belle cope with the nine-to-five, a staggering decline in her underwear budget and no more paid sex? As Belle explores life and love after the game, her story is frank, smart and refreshingly honest. Punctuated with advice, anecdotes and reflections in her inimitable voice, this is a novel of secrets and lies, scabrous wit and more than a little lust.
