Olivia Chia-lin Lee graduated from UC Berkeley with the intention of applying to divinity school. Instead she went to work as a community organizer in Oakland, California, on behalf of garment workers and low-income laborers. She later became one of the highest-paid call girls in San Francisco. For the past few years, she has been farming taro in Hanalei, Kauai. “Pimp” is excerpted from her memoir in progress, The Propaganda of a Woman.
