Product Description

From the Back Cover

I have had the great pleasure of having had Paula, as a close personal friend for many years. I am delighted she has now taken the opportunity to write my biography. The publishers invited me to write a few words to express what Paula means to me.

Those words in alphabetical order would be beautiful, bossy, charming, eloquent, groovy, hard, individual, late, loyal, mischievous, moist, sexy, sharp, soft, vulnerable, witty

I hope you enjoy reading this excellent book that my dear friend has written. Please bear in mind much of it is likely to be barefaced lies.

An incredibly witty, yet often poignant recollection of the life of Paula Yates. I found the book difficult to put down and by the end of it, an admirer of this much mis-represented and tragically short-lived icon.

Format: Hardcover
In the USA, Paula isn't the household name she is in the UK. However, I wanted to find out more about this woman after the death of Michael Hutchence, one of my favorite musicians. I'll be honest -- I didn't expect much. But I was pleasantly surprised. She has an entertaining style of writing. The book was excellent through her childhood, meeting Bob, The Tube, Live Aid, her children -- but it became a bit boring toward the end. The chapter about touring with the band "Take That" was totally worthless to the book. There really wasn't much revealed about the break up with Bob and the beginning of her relationship with Michael. Great photos and amusing anecdotes about some of my favorite musicians. Definitely a fun book to read if you like biographies -- I even laughed out loud a few times.

This is a tricky one to review with hindsight.
Paula writes honestly and had a very odd upbringing. However she adored her own children and had her own quirky style.
The book is written after leaving Bob Geldof when she embarked on her affair with Michael Hutchens.
There is a lot of self justification however I wonder if she had remained with Sir Bob if she might still be alive.
Knowing the real ending this is a rather sad book.

Format: Paperback
This book is an amazing read. Witty, funny (sarcastic in places), I've not enjoyed reading a book so much in ages. I loved everything Paula Yates did, she was a great columnist, a great TV presenter and a great book writer, and it was very sad when she died. This book made me laugh out loud on many occaisions, I couldn't put it down - you can just imagine her in some of the prediciments she's mentioning in this book. If you want to cheer yourself up then read it, it can't but help make you feel so much happier.

Dig this one out of the archives so no-one forgets what a brilliant woman Paula was and what a truly fascinating life she led. The anecdotes come thick and fast and the way she slips in famous names with ease and no sense of boastfulness, often makes you shake your head and realise that she could have filled a whole library with the experiences she shared with many great and interesting people. I wish she had as I could read books written by her all day and all night - she was greater and more interesting than any of them.
