    Ah but your fine novel is definitely all about the truth too…and getting down to it. 🙂
    Love DV, love her autobiography, was so happy that I saw the show at the Met all those years ago…

      That is…true!
      There’s a documentary about her, I think it’s one long interview, that I’ve been meaning to see…

        #bizarreserendipity ordered it weeks ago and am picking it up from the library if you want to have a viewing over tea in the next few days!

      I think she must be posed in front of her portrait painting???

    I really love D.V. for a lot of reasons, she just seems to be squeezing every last drop out of life. It is normally close to my bedside table at home. I have been in SF for so long with none of my books, so I had to look it up online recently when I had the urge to read a bit of it.

      If I recall, she starts the book with an anecdote about putting a mustard plaster on a movie star’s backside, got to love it!
