it was ok
Recommended for: ppl with a Bowie ax to grind
Read in October, 2007

I'm only about 20 pages through it, and I can already say, with confidence, it's tripe...I'll keep slogging on, if only to get to the Iggy years

ok...hardly any Iggy. It got a bit better (and by better I mean, I was able to finish it). She brings up some good points about being a woman in the music industry at that time, and kind of makes a case for her side of the story, but the writing style is really distracting (i.e. grating). I also just wasn't buying her claim that she was the only sane, decent, sober person around Bowie at the time...mainly because she was probably none of those things.

Molly it's like the 1970's version of your favorite celebrity tome "The Truth About Diamonds" by Nicole Richie!
