seems to me to be an ego-maniac and her digressions in her books make her sound incredibly immature. That said, I contradict my objections to her by having read all her books. But frankly its hard to feel sorry for a girl/woman who loves putting her hip beauty on the covers of her books and who was given more in life than most. I feel like, instead of finding that purging her addictions on paper as giving her a therapeutic release, she found that addiction, like sex, sells. But I wouldn't give her the time if she wasn't a talented writer. So I guess I'm back and forth on her...her writing Yes, her life, however...there's many more moving accounts and memoirs on the dark subject of addiction.
