Let me DEFEND my wurtzel girl here kids.

I think that her publishers had a lot to do with this book being a redemption story when all was said and done.

Being that BITCH was such a....well....coked up little wander through Wurtzel's rathering refreshing Bad Girl take on the big scary F word---maybe her long-suffering friend & agent Lydia just didn't want another nightmare book tour--wurtzel missing her connection to Sweden and ending up buying expensive scarves and alchohol in Iceland instead, crashing out on the doubleday couches with old chinesse food and an adorable yet tiresome attitude, pissing everyone off including old friends lovers and drug connections all over the city, slutting her way through yet another rehab. You know maybe her agent just saw a chance for her to make a little more money before she started Law School at Yale.

Maybe this was all in the end a part of a reputation make over for the lovely and talented Ms. Wurtzel. Her beauty should not be held against her. People always do that---they think, "She is SO pretty that she doesn't have to PAY for her mistakes like the rest of us." Well, I think she has paid plenty & now she's enjoying the benefits of her hard work. Despite the general feeling the reader may have of stories not being told her---it still has the essential lizzie goodness---cool music quotes, literary references, wacky tales of travel family and county jail, time spent in hotel rooms and bars. Hey...

there's even married MEN and PORN.

What more could you ask?

Nice one Liz! What's your retainer?

Effy I love when she uses "the essential lizzie goodness---cool music quotes, literary references, (Victoria)" and movie references. I am about watching old movies, learning about the good songs of the past, and literary references. I see if that is who you are, referencing goodness, don't hide it. I worry though because His Girl Friday the remake with the male, female lead is one of my favorite movies.
