A Curious Career by Lynn Barber (Released 2014)

Painfully nosy, preposterous and even a touch egotistical, Lynn Barber is the journalist we love to hate. In this memoir, she recollects interviews with red carpet regulars, her childhood and her career start as a journalist for Penthouse. This is the perfect read for hilarious and frank observations of some of the world’s biggest pop culture icons. This book is nothing short of nonsensical humour derived from the interviewing style of a blunt, strong woman, who “sings the strangeness and variety of the human race”.The Autobiography of an All Blacks Legend by Don
