    After finishing a book like this, one must face his own darn curiosity Curiosity that leads us to any celebrity biography in the first place There is this dilemma any book that is too fawning, we dismiss as irrelevant On the other hand, if the details are too seedy, we would rather not really know it The truth is, every life could be described either way, it just depends on a point of view It might come as surprise, but in the right hands your own life could turn into sordid bestseller fu After finishing a book like this, one must face his own darn curiosity Curiosity that leads us to any celebrity biography in the first place There is this dile...
