Must Read

While I was sick in bed all week, I managed to catch up on some reading.  This book by Steve Martin is fantastic!  Make sure and download this one on your kindle or buy it for your next trip.

Lacey Yeager appears on New York's art scene as a clever, funny young Sotheby's intern. With charm, ambition, and occasionally illegal tactics, she climbs the city's cultural ladder to success in the labyrinthine art world. Her knowledge of art and its collectors quickly grows alongside a list of men she enchants and inevitably destroys. Her rise to society's highest tiers parallels the soaring heights - and, at times, the dark lows - of the art world and the country from the early '90s through today.  - Los Angeles Times

"A bodacious, brainy, bountiful read and a bracing cautionary tale....The most charmingly rendered female schemer since Truman Capote's Holly Golightly." - Elle magazine

I can only imagine who this Lacey Yeager must look like (Kate Hudson or Anne Hathaway)...or who will play her part in the movie.  Let's hope they make this a movie!
