makes you want to live as a monk
on 28 February 2012
Story of stupidity and excess , about endless champagne and sashimi in nobu , being able to buy the right shoes , swearing , strip clubs , being sick etc etc . This is not some debauched glorious account of a rock star , that makes you jealous and wish you could be there . This is a miserable story , its not clever , pretty or sexy . Its greeedy and binge drinking and I dont understand why Venetia did it for so long , why she allowed herself to act as she did , before she became ill and depressed . She stopped because she was pushed and I think there was a little about her that thought it was all rather clever . Venetia can write , so it stops it from being a horrid little book and becomes something that you should read and then take a cold shower afterwards . I dont know how true all the bond/ broker stuff is , as I skipped all the banking details , economics borred me at school and so I still never grasped the point of being a broker.
