Raquel Pacheco’s The Sweet Venom of the Scorpion: The Diary of a Call Girl proves a bestseller in Brazil.
In just over a month, it has sold some 30,000 copies and is already in its third edition — a huge success in a country where only a fraction of the population reads books. It also ranks third on Brazil’s bestseller list for nonfiction books, neck-and-neck with international hits like “Freakonomics” by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner.
