book cover for "The Whore Next Door"

The Whore Next Door is a memoir consisting of 106 short chapters – each accompanied by an original watercolor painting. It is slightly shocking, but not pornographic.

This Luxurious 6 x 9 Hardcover, Small-Coffee Table Book is beautifully bound and printed on sumptuous archival paper, with museum quality reproductions of the original paintings.


"Annie Campbell's The Whore Next Door is simply magical. Part road story, part confessional, The Whore Next Door is a tender, joyful heartbreaking and hilarious illustrated memoir about sex, drugs, work, motherhood, mistakes and triumphs, men and boys. This visually rich and compelling coming of age tale will keep you laughing and enthralled and sometimes cringing. Campbell's subtly powerful tale will draw you in, like sitting at the table with your favorite wild, baby-boomer aunt while she tells you about her youthful travels, romances and struggles. I'm convinced the secrets to survival are contained in these pages."

"Who except Annie Campbell tells stories with such a winning matter-of-factness and paints paintings with such a comic and baroque exuberance? No one I know of. The Whore Next Door is a double-barreled delight."
