Oh my, what a guilty pleasure!! Dishy, bitchy, informative, sardonic, satiric-- this is a very unconventional biography. The author gathers bits and pieces from past accounts of PM's life but it's the flavor he adds that gives this book its spicy, addictive appeal. I literally couldn't put it down at times! It's also a fine antidote to the "wouldn't it be fun to be a Royal" fantasy. I had mixed feelings about the book throughout, but the format (99 glimpses) and the subjects (royalty, celebrity, aging, love lost) made for an engrossing read.
