    1 thought on “Missy”

    1. God knows I love a spunky historical prostitute. Given that, it is serious business to say this is probably the best book about a spunky historical prostitute I HAVE EVER READ. This is an excellent book about being a lady, a friend, a daughter, an addict, a professional and an adventuress. Also the writing is fantastic and you will learn new turns of phrase. Here's the first sentence: "I expect you have the consolation of religion, or the guidance of a philosophy, but when me and the girls get f [...]

    2. Yee Haw! Rolling, Rolling, Roolingd sure thing, a little Droolingon all that Opium being lugged around The Wild Wild West by all manner 'o folks. Gussied up tarts, full-fledged prostitutes, them Chinamen, gunslangers, gold diggers—both variety's, losers, winners, yep, you just never know who or what kind of person that is riding up behind you in this lawless land. This was a fun, rollicking, ride through the Old West, written by an award-winning playwright from across the pond. Great job Chris [...]

    3. This humdinger about a gang of San Francisco teenage prostitutes (!) who set out to start anew in one of the silver mining boom towns of the Sierra Nevadas is both hugely entertaining and very, very naughty:) On route, the girls encounter a malevolent pimp who is on the run from the San Franciso mob because he stole an invaluable case of solid opium, which he's having a hard time fencing. This puts him in a very bad mood, where he's just as likely to choke a girl to death as he is to kiss her. T [...]

    4. I enjoyed the book a lot. I guess it was a historical novel, but it was also a study of the world of drug addiction. Here are some of my miscellaneous thoughts about the book: 1. Many books are great along the way and it's not the destination that is so good, but the journey getting there. I would say that the destination in this book, where our main 19 year old opium addicted call girl realizes finally, that her whole existence and actions were seriously tainted by her addiction, was the thing [...]

    5. My attraction to reading 'Missy' was that it's author, Chris Hannan, was my playwrighting tutor at university. I saw it in the bookstore and I was compelled to read it. I'm glad I did.The story centres on Dol McQueen, the protagonist and narrator of the book, who's way with words is truly unique. We follow Dol as she simultaneously lands in trouble with a suicidal pimp, tracks down her alcoholic mother, and battles her own addiction to opium. And it's set in the 'Wild West' to boot!Hannan crafts [...]

    6. I never expected to like this book as much as I did. There are passages contained within that took my breath away, very well and beautifully written sentences.This biggest surprise is the sort of yin/yang quality of this book. On one end, you have the rollicking, wild-west setting; on the other, you have a deep-thinking, opium-addicted protagonist who is searching for something just beyond her reach. All the while, you think she is searching for something very obvious, but when you get to the en [...]

    7. Prostitutes, laudanum, mayhem and absolutely gorgeous writing set in 1862 silver-mining Nevada. 'Picaresque' doesn't begin to describe this novel, by British playwright Chris Hannan, who takes great delight in showing off the ugly, unromantic side of the American West that never would have been featured in a John Wayne movie. The story unfolds through the eyes of Dol McQueen, a flash girl with an adventurous spirit and one hell of a laundanum habit, who comes into possession of a rum crate full [...]

    8. Missy, 27 April 2008By R. Hunt "Robs" (Edinburgh)This book is amazing on every level, I totally adore it and cannot recommend it highly enough. Set in California in 1862, this is tale of the old American west with a difference - it's some 'flash-girls' that go off and have themselves a high old adventure in the middle of the Nevada desert. Oh, yes, and there's a crate of stolen 'Missy' (Opium), an evil pimp, some creepy lawless kids, and some Indians too. They've a lot to contend with.Written [...]

    9. Thanks to my friend Ann for this one. A very unique story and I couldn't stop reading it. Dol McQueen is a 19 year old,calls herself a Flash Girl (lives in a whore house) and she had had a hard life. She is constantly looking out for her her mother. But her mother could care less about her, and is not afraid to let her know this upfront since she was a child. A hard thing to bear at such a young age of 8 or 9. Dol is more a mother to her mom, than her mom will ever be a mother to her. She is add [...]

    10. I picked up "Missy" at the library solely based on the sweet cover art. The premise seemed, well, promising. A prostitute, who is addicted to opiates, from San Francisco travels east to a booming mining town. I went into the story understanding Dol, the main character, would be an anti-hero character. The trouble with Hannan's novel (and the reason I stopped reading it) is that it was uninteresting. A young prostitute, who's an addict, has abandoment issues. A pimp who attempts suicide in the wo [...]

    11. Fiction A-Z Book 'H': "Missy" by Chris HannanAh, sometimes the hoary old cliches prove true. And the one that proved true in this case was "Don't Judge a Book by its Cover"."Missy" jumped out at me as I was scanning the 'Hs', because it's got a beautifully designed cover. So I read the jacket description (essentially boiling down to 'Laudanum addicted prostitute has adventures in the Old West') and saw that it was a Western written by a Scottish playwright. I was sold.Now I have buyer's remorse. [...]

    12. The first sentence lights the keg."I expect you have the consolation of religion, or the guidance of a philosophy, but when me and the girls get frazzled, or blue, or rapturous, or just awfully so-so, we shin out and buy ourselves some hats."And so the story of Dol, a young addled opium prostitute, begins. She and a couple of the "girls" set out from San Francisco to the gold fields of the Eastern Sierra in hopes of more lucrative prospects and some good times. A delicious treat for fans of a go [...]

    13. For me, this book was a difficult one to rate. There were some parts that were absolutely amazing with imagery and thought, but then there were parts that just left me bored. I enjoyed Dol's voice and her experiences and I found the book to be fascinating in its description of the Old West and its mining towns. I was hooked on Dol's crazy journey through the desert and the salt flats, but there was just something about this book that prevented me from absolutely loving it. Perhaps it was the end [...]

    14. I loved the originality of this book which is the story of an opium addict in the wild west days. However, the plot becomes diluted and loses focus for me. The book could have been fantastic with some plot corrections (maybe I should be an editor?). The author has a powerful sense of language and uses it to create disturbiing scenes. Their are images from that book that will stay with me for a very long time. Read it if you like reading stories of the wild west.

    15. Oh, this is a fine book. Told in the first person in unapologetic and delightful vernacular, Dol's story is at turns hilarious and tragic, full of dubious ne'er-do-wells, rascals, flash girls and deeply weird criminal lunatics. It isn't nice - it's rough, ugly, and occasionally astonishingly violent - but it's well realized and the narrator's pragmatic, enthusiastic, and often willfully misguided approach to life can't help but win you over.

    16. A swift, violent, weird, and often funny post modern western about a box of liquid opium (here referred to as "Missy") and a bunch of protitutes (here referred to as "flash girls") who get their hands on it. Also contains evil pimps, shoot outs, a band of crafty feral children after the missy, and much fun.

    17. A western that doesn't follow a cowboy, a rancher, or a sheriff, but instead profiles a "flash girl" (aka, prostitute), Dol, who's addicted to opium. The writing makes me think of the way people talk in "Deadwood" -- flowery, with curses. It's a good picture of what it's like to be an addict -- to see the flaws in others and totally miss your own.

    18. What a trip- Dol is a fantastic anti-hero - funny, tragic, infuriating, streetwise, naive, loving, loyal and above all drugged out of her mind. As others have said-this is Deadwood meets all the feisty heroines you've had the pleasure to meet. And written by a Scot, male, playwright? Who would have thought!

    19. Very interesting story of survival . . . or not . . . of a group of prostitutes who travel from San Francisco to Salt Lake City. Sex, booze, drugs, murder, love. The resiliance of the human spirit (and body) is incredible.

    20. the "voice" of the narrator was pretty hard to understand in the beginning, but once i got through that it was entertaining.

    21. Such a fun read! I really hope the Dol McQueen character returns. Also, a movie version would be welcomed, particularly from those of us going through 'Deadwood' withdrawal. *shakes*

    22. I really enjoyed this book, both for it's interesting setting/period detail and tough if a little confused heroine.

    23. This book is amazing on every level, I totally adore it and cannot recommend it highly enough. Set in California in 1862, this is tale of the old American west with a difference - it's some 'flash-girls' that go off and have themselves a high old adventure in the middle of the Nevada desert.

    25. I grabbed this one off the shelf knowing nothing about it. Opium addicted, prostitute Dol follows the silver boom miners looking to make money and have a fabulous time. Nearly permanently gonged out on missy, she wanders aimlessly from party to party and her next dose. She stumbles upon a violent pimp and his huge stash of missy, steals it, and then must figure out how to get rid of it before the original owners kill her and everyone she knows.While all of this is happening, her band of flash-gi [...]

    26. This is a life or death, edge of the seat, thrill of a story set in the very Wild West of 1860s America, that takes us through California, Iowa and Arizona on the trail of a crate of opium on the run from Chinese gangsters, scalping injuns and the law themselves as our loose moralled and potty mouthed heroines avoid skirmishes, shoot-outs and violence fresh from the drifting Californian plains. But despite this, Hannan's book is entirely heart-warming and infectious as he explores quite evidentl [...]

    27. I liked, but didn’t love this book. It’s the story of 19-year-old Dol McQueen, a prostitute in the rootin’-tootin’ wilds of the Olde West, who struggles with her addition to opium (The "Missy" of the title is laudanum.), her troubled relationship with her alcoholic mother, and her inability to have or be a real friend. Oh, and the fact that a violent criminal is after her because she sort of stole his large and incredibly valuable stash of raw opium. The writing was good, the historical [...]
