Read in August, 2012

It's not that this book was bad. It's just that its content didn't interest me. It was an interesting insight into the art world and the lives of people who have excessive amounts of money to spend. Also, I couldn't stop imagining Steve Martin as the author, which reminded me of watching a movie and then being unable not to imagine Leonardo DiCaprio as the main character while reading the book.

Favorite line: "Her knack for causing heartbreak was innate, but her vitality often made people forgive her romantic misdeeds. Now, however, she is nearing forty and not so easily forgiven as when her skin bloomed like roses."

Heather I hate Lacey. Not finished with this yet but I keep picturing Martin too. Shopgirl is way better.
