Ugh. I felt like I needed to take a bath after this one. I don't know if I'll be able to stomach Top Chef anymore. Not sure if it was his intention or not, but Toby Young presented himself as the most vile creature: a social miscreant, lazy (all of his trademark "bon mottes" (sp?) were ripped off from someone else), entitled, a hypocrite, and don't get me started on his offensive objectification of women. It's rare that I don't finish a book, but I got mad at myself for letting this guy have any of my attention. Thank goodness this was just a library book. After his description of his tenure at VF, which I must admit was incredibly fascinating, I could care less what happened to him.
