The fortunes and misfortunes of the famous Moll Flanders, who was born in Newgate Jail, was twelve years a whore, five times a wife (whereof once to her own brother), twelve years a thief, eight years a transported felon and at last grew rich, lived honest and died a penitent.

She should be so lucky.

Songs, sex and slander by the authors of Robinson Crusoe and Trafford Tanzi.
