The Squeeze

By (author) Lesley Glaister

Set between 1989 and the downfall of Ceausescu, and 2013, The Squeeze travels between Edinburgh, Romania and Oslo and see this -multi-award-winning and bestselling author at the height of her powers. Marta, a teenager trafficked from Romania in the early 1990s is forced to work as a prostitute in Edinburgh. Mats, a Norwegian businessman, who longs only to be a good husband and father, becomes involved with Marta and both their lives are wrenched – for good or ill – in new directions. Told in a splintered narrative style that allows glimpses into several points of view, The Squeeze explores the transactions that take place between men and women. Sex, money and the desire for love, are at its heart.
