Originally published in an expurgated version in 1947 by Sartre in Les Temps modernes, 'I'm for Hire' is the first-person account of a Paris prostitute who works both sides of the conflict between France and Germany, also taking her clientele from the Americans and Arabs. The author was not identified until after Olympia's version was published (as part of the Traveller's Companion series in 1955.)
