On Thursday 5/28 at 7:00 p.m. Anna David will be reading excerpts from "Bought" as well as signing copies at Book Soup in West Hollywood. "Bought" is out today on Harper Paperbacks.

You might recognize Anna David from G4’s “Attack of the Show.” As the popular program’s sex and relationship expert, David gracefully dishes advice that's as entertainingly witty as it is honest. While a go-to answer gal for bedroom matters, her expertise extends further than one might imagine.

David's second novel, "Bought," explores the world of high-class "kept women." Described as sugar babies taken care of by sugar daddies, these gals exchange their bodies and companionships for gifts. While not prostitutes, that's who lead David to this new, growing group.

It’s this curious moral territory which David, a former LA resident (she's called NYC home for a year and a half,) explores in “Bought,” the latest offering from the “Party Girl” author. LAist caught up with her to talk about the new book, life away from LA, and why there’s no better place to get sober than where she did: Los Angeles.
