Barely worth a review really.
I read this book on the back of "Him and Me" and it was a mistake, whirl the former had a good structure and lots of energy, holding my attention throughout (it even made me lough out loud. An achievement indeed, as I'm not noted for my sense of humour!), I found this laconic and boring in the extreme.
Sadly it was lazily written, with too much name dropping, even for an agent, and many bitchy and unnecessary anecdotes which, for me, makes the writer the lesser person
