It really is tricky when reading this book to know how much of it is real, how much is fantasy and how much just plain fibs. It matters little however becuase you still feel the need to read on anyway.
'Lady' Newborough is (was) a terrible name dropper and very confident in her own good looks (she was only too aware of the power of an attractive female body). None of this matters - for a start most of the names she 'drops' may once have been very important members of society - yet today you will not have heard of many of them.
As a small child she claims she ran away from her home in a castle (her family were Balkan gentry) to join the circus! Indeed world travel was something she did a great deal of as she grew older and more 'worldly-wise'!
Denisa died aged 79 and would have us believe that she was many things: tramp (in every sense!), wire-walker, nightclub girl, nude dancer,stripper,airpilot. She only refused (she says) to be two things - a whore and a spy - 'and there were attempts to make me both,' she wrote.Indeed from reading the book it is hard to spot the line that she claims not to have crossed. By her own admission she would deliberatly pick up/go out with men just so they could buy her cars, jewels and furs as well as rent houses for her (several men and houses all at the same time occasionally!).Read more ›
