GIRL WITH SPIRAL NOTEBOOK: A Writer's Memoir of New York Life
Susan Braudy, author
In this memoir, I write about observing people who have bold-faced names, talent, and ruling class privilege--from Hugh Hefner to Michael Douglas to Gloria Steinem. I desperately wanted to observe and write about these shining people and even join their charmed circle. I did write about them. But I became slowly disillusioned by the elbows-out, me-first tactics of our A-list people. If the actions of the late Jeffrey Epstein and Donald Trump hadn't become public knowledge, I would be hard-pressed to convince my readers of my change of heart. Another working title for this memoir could be "Slipping and Sliding on the A-List."
