it was amazing

Loved the sentences with nary a padding, every word tells, counts for something. Rhythm of writing great with changes for two points of view. And so sobering, this book, how tabloid attacks made of curdled-whipped-cream lies can ruin lives and leave sterling reputations tarnished--we know it, but watching it hurts a lot. The way old age shreds the ego of the public achiever, or any of us, leaving a competent, renowned person a shell, yes, like the film, "The Artist." The way feckless youth can scythe through a worthy life and go drink champagne after. Respect as a lost concept. Dignity as a cape. Honor and Tamara --memorable in torment. Well done!
