Publisher Comments:

Dani Shapiro, a young woman from a deeply religious home, became the girlfriend of a famous and flamboyant married attorney-her best friend's stepfather. The moment Lenny Klein entered her life, everything changed: she dropped out of college, began drinking, and neglected her friends and family. But then came a phone call-an accident on a snowy road had left her parents critically injured. Forced to reconsider her life, Shapiro learned to re-enter the world she had left. Telling of a life nearly ruined by the gift of beauty, and then saved through tragedy, Shapiro's memoir is a beautiful account of how a life gone terribly wrong can be rescued through tragedy.

Nancy London, January 19, 2014 (view all comments by Nancy London)
An Orthodox Jewish girl grows up to be the beautiful young mistress of a powerful New York trial lawyer. Furs. Diamonds. Fast cars. Trips to Europe. Alcohol and cocaine addiction. Sounds like a juicy novel, but it's actually Dani Shapiro's memoir. Highly recommended.
