I enjoyed this book, I really did, but perhaps less than I thought I would. I read it after seeing the preview for the film and loving it. However, the entirety of the film is contained in one chapter of the book. The rest of the book is not as gripping, though still interesting. I was sad to get through the love affair with the older man so quickly, as her way of describing it was so honest. Lynn Barber definitely lived an entertaining life, having worked for Penthouse magazine for many years, however I wish there had been more about the part the film concentrated on.
