Dear Reader,

As I was about to start my eleventh novel, I abruptly realized that I was making a huge mistake. On the verge of launching into the imagined world of a twenty-eight-year-old, I felt an intense need to tell another story, the story of a woman I know through and through...a woman with more wealth of experience, a woman who's seen more real glamour, known more fas

Entertaining and funny, if somewhat amoral, recalling of an interesting and intense life, by the best of the "trashy" authors of glitz romance novels. She certainly knew what she was writing about!

having read judith krantz's books in high school, it was fun to get to know more about her upbringing and how that influenced her stories.

One of my favorites. A great behind the scenes look into the making of a national bestselling author before the Internet and Sicial Media existed. Plus, frankly, her stories about the lessons she learned from decorating a dream apartment when she moved to Paris, are wonderful, especially because she admits the mistakes she made!

This should really be called "Completely, Utterly, Devastatingly, Superbly: A Woman and the Adverbs she Loved Unreservedly" ...but I only kid because I love.
The first half of the book is totally dishy and fun, with the kind of descriptions of "what normal people did in the olden days" that are absolute catnip to me. The second half drags a bit, but overall a super fun read!

Judith Krantz narrates her life as if it were a novel. An example of self-knowledge and honesty. I really enjoyed reading this book.
