Product Details


“[Debbie Doesn’t Do It Anymore] features a range of the best-selling author’s trademark plot roller coasters with their sharp rises, dips, and loop-the-loops.” —Boston Globe

“In most of his 42 books, the much-admired Mosley has given us desperate characters constantly tested by circumstances and fate. Until now, none of his other series or stand-alones have come close to matching the kudos that have been showered on the Rawlins series. But Debbie’s on stage now, and her brutally elegant story and its shocking conclusion will stun you.”
Chicago Tribune

“There is a crime in this book—several, in fact—and there’s also self-discovery, recrimination, retribution, reunions and sex. . . .  If you’re at all curious about the inner workings of the porn industry, or if you’ve ever dreamed of doing a life makeover, give this novel a read.”
–NPR Books, Staff Pick–Great Reads of the Year

“This could be the best thing Mosley has written in years, a deeply affecting story of a woman whose determination to pull herself out of one life and into another is tested almost to its limits by things she can’t control—until she finds a way to control them…[Mosley is] back at the top of his game here.”
Booklist, starred review

“The premise is jarring, yet Mosley is able to paint a picture of ordinary people. He shows the humanity of the characters despite their flaws.”
Library Journal

“Prolific novelist Mosley (Little Green, 2013, etc.) fielded his fair share of criticism for his X-rated one-two punch of Killing Johnny Fry (2006) and Diablerie (2007), and readers attracted to the equally explicit nature of this novel might be expecting more of the same. In truth, readers are likely to be more surprised by the depth of protagonist Sandra Peel, whom the author treats with tremendous compassion… A well-told redemption song about the most unlikely of heroines.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Debbie is an elemental creation in Mosley’s canon, a strong female character with an impeccable voice.”
Publishers Weekly
