"An amazing tour de force." (Cosmopolitan)
Hope Davis does a wonderful job reading this book. Unfortunately, it is better read as a look into a bygone era than as a timeless classic that still resonates today.
I'd heard about this book for so many years and I was always curious. It's VERY entertaining, but because of the the sexually graphic language I listened to it secretly! It also made me realize that not much has changed when it comes to the spoils of sexuality.
John, I wish I'd read your review before I wasted a credit on this book. You're a better (or stronger willed) person than I am if you listened to the end.
There may be people out that that can relate to Isadora Wing, but I am definitely not one of them.
