really liked it

I kind of want to give this 5 stars because I sped through it in two days. But it was more that reading Febos' story is like watching a train wreck. Not only was she a dominatrix, but she was a heroin addict, too! How she remembers so much about what she did when she was that doped up, I have no idea. Anyway, both the tale of being a dominatrix and the tale of being a drug addict is so far outside of my normal schema (or any of my friends' schemas) that I was completely intrigued.

But, I didn't give the book 5 stars because I find the author to give off a pretentious, know-it-all vibe that annoyed me throughout.
