I'm so glad they decided to reprint this book as I loved every minute of reading it. Betty May was a fabulous person, a free spirit with a fiery soul and it's such a shame that she has been mostly forgotten. She was a strong believer in fate and you can see why. She seemed to be one of those people who just attracts adventure and excitement like a magnet. It was fascinating to read about her childhood in poverty, her life as a London socialite with her famous friends, her time in a street gang in Paris, her cocaine addiction, her 4 marriages and her time spent at the Thelemite temple in Sicily with Aleister Crowley. There was never a dull moment in this book. I would be so interested to know more about what happened to her later in life.

Fascinating insight to someone who actually met the great beast and didn't just research one of the most controversial charismatic personalities of the 20th century .A good point of view from one of the many who loathed Crowley and one his power held no sway over but her husband he had the opposite effect on and had complete dominance to the point where he would put his masters wishes far ahead of his new wifes.

When Betty May wrote her autobiography in 1929, her debauched life story shocked society at the time. Now, nearly a century later, the book continues to have the same effect. When I began reading, I was immediately drawn to her narrative, one that was brutally honest and insightful. I could not help but feel sorry for Betty as she described her terrible childhood and the lack of love and attention she was denied by her parents and their circumstances. As the story progressed, I continued to be shocked by the ease into which she fell into a wayward life, partly for the sake of survival and partly for an inner coldness she seemed to possess that helped her survive.

From the first page to the last, I was fascinated by all that she had experienced. From satanism, her numerous husbands and failed marriages, sexual encounters, prostitution, life and death threats, crimes, and drug addiction, it would be an understatement to say she lived a colorful life.

It's not a long book, but Betty May definitely had a talent for writing for her escapades are relayed in a vibrant, shocking manner. I have to say, this is one of the most gripping autobiographies I have ever written. It is no surprise that it has endured for nearly a century. A truly fascinating woman and a tale of survival!

I did not find this as exciting as I first thought but it was fairly interesting. I had to push aside my feelings of dislike for Betty May as the more I read the more I disliked her narcissism.
