This is not the kind of book I would normally pick p I m not super into celeb culture and have never been the kind of person who was into reading things like People and US Weekly and any other magazine or website that deals in the photographs that the paparazzi are selling to I wound p reading it because Trey Graham formally of NPR s Pop Culture Happy Hour "Podcast Was Mailing Interested People "was mailing people from his bookshelf in order to help clear it from his bookshelf in order to help clear it This is the book that I wound p with so I felt like I should read itAlthough it s not a world I care much about I must say that Buhl is a decent writer as she had me engaged in reading a book on a subject I m not really interested in Buhl spent a little over two years as a paparazza She recounts her experiences getting involved in it and how the business actually works She also spends a lot of time justifying the existence of the paparazzi It all felt a lot like someone making excuses and trying to justify what they re doing even though they know it s not right She even completely contradicts herself in the book on the matter She sort of smugly provides a list of things that celebrities can do to keep themselves away from the paparazzi and to have the paparazzi lose interest in them if they really don t want to be bothered Then she spends chapters recounting stalking Kate Bosworth and Jennifer Aniston pointing out that they hate paparazzi and do everything they can to avoid them There is no doubt that some celebrities and pseudo celebrities want the attention and I don t disagree with her on that point It is very obvious to that there are a lot of people who don t want the attention or at least not in the way that they re getting it and the paparazzi is very intrusive and invasive As I mentioned I never really cared that much about celebrity culture and never bought any of those types of magazines or sought out some of the websites that traffic in this kind of stuff However I do very much like spoilers and casting info and news about all the television shows I love Some sites I like to get that information from deal in both kinds of news and I would click on headlines in my RSS feed sometimes Over a year ago I made a personal decision to not give any clicks to those types of photos if I could help it I will only look at celebrity photos if they re things they have posted online themselves or when they re being photographed at an official event where they re expecting it After reading this book I feel even better about that decision Jennifer you could have Little Beach Street Bakery: A Novel used my real name Good book but possibly could have been marketed a little differently Less C list celebrity and woman s struggle in a man s world I flipped open this book because I thought it would be the perfect fluffy distraction I needed on an evening when the world had been a bit much Then I found myself stayingp past my bedtime turning down page corners and thinking a lot about what it is to be a woman in this dayThe book has four threads The fi.
