bookshelves: read-in-2011

A gem: brilliantly written and deeply informed, this fast-paced blockbuster of a biography is stuffed with surprises on almost every page. And what can you say about a book about the world’s richest woman that’s stuffed with tales of adultery, murder, civil war, incest, high-stakes international politics, religious cults, back stabbing, double-dealing, and dazzling displays of wealth. Pick it up. Read it. You’ll thank me.
