After 20 years in prostitution, Thanadda has seen it all: chronic gambling, drugs, honorable crime bosses, arrests and deportation. Now in compact and uncensored form, I Am Eri: Extra Spicy combines the best of I Am Eri with never-before-told anecdotes. Part confession, part travelogue, Thanadda’s latest will have readers turning the pages.
In place of idyllic snow and cherry blossoms, Thanadda finds herself among human traffickers and Japanese crime syndicates in the streets of Tokyo, Yokohama, and rural Japan.
