a cracking read
on 17 October 2010
I had been slightly put off autobiographies after reading some fairly dire efforts, for example Freddie Flintoff's, but decided to buy this one as Vidal sounded like an interesting character; and I haven't been disappointed. He has had an amazing life, from a very humble upbringing to becoming a worldwide hairdressing success, rubbing shoulders with some amazing star names from the 60s and 70s along the way; some hilarious accounts of the 60s London scene are a particular highlight. So if you are looking for a well-written inspirational life journey, look no further than Vidal: he's done it all!
