Nov 07, Rhianna Schoonover rated it really liked it. For several years, she lives a secluded life in Carmel and grants Stash short visits with Daisy. Having read this previously, ages ago, I skimmed judtih of the second half, Daisy’s life in advertising far more in depth than I thought necessary.
Krantz doesn’t let a reader get away with imagining a scene: Holding the mother of all unpopular opinions, I was totally fascinated by the character of Ram and loved kranhz intensity of his every scene with Daisy.
What a pile of trashy junk. So you’ll be having some absurd seduction scene, and suddenly she’ll break off for a detailed, apparently very sophisticated description of what the woman is wearing.

The first time was for a book called Scrupleswhich I will probably never get around to reading. Then, suddenly, the fairy tale ended. A Masterly written Novella about a young woman who should have a easy life, but instead ends up with severe abuse, struggle and have to fight for everything.
He was far from a romantic man, but everything about her stung his imagination with an unaccustomed fascination. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Discussion of crapulent rubbish — and can one delve deeper than sharkshit? Stash tried to explain polo to Francesca but she scarcely listened, mesmerised as she was with the abrupt movements of his tanned hands on which light blonde hair grew, the hands of a great male animal.

But I found myself getting distracted and wanting some juice so I turned to my old friend; 80s trash. Princess Daisy is not even reprehensible for the three million dollars its author was paid for it in advance.
I will always have a fond memory of this book and Judith Krantz for that reason. Knowing that the dithyrambs have gone on long enough, Mrs Krantz has tried to undercut them with something earthy.
It’s about a bona fide princess born from a polo star who’s also a Russian prince and a movie star. We get all their stories, in detail, but in maddening order.
Qui non ci sarebbe stata male una descrizione minuziosa della prima volta tra Daisy e Patrick. Jones, I know all three models we”re going to use; one of them lives on raw veggies and is working on her black belt in Karate, the second has just been signed for her first movie and the third is an est trainer who”s engaged to marry a man with oil wells–now, would three wholesome American girls like that have any intention of jumping?

It was the 70s, I was young and reading all this low-brow stuff and I liked it, dammit! There is nothing wrong with gusto, but when easy familiarity is what you are trying to convey, gush is to be avoided.
Daisy herself was quite compelling. References to this book The Godfather and American Culture: What she says is rarely inaccurate, as far as I can tell. In short, by what rationale do you devote so many, or any, column inches to a work and its author who are both best quickly forgotten, or better still, completely ignored?
Which is undoubtedly a Good Book. I’ll probably be in the mood to read this again someday but as it is the sort of book that always finds its way to Book Sale counters, I’m pretty sure i can find it again when i need it. She discovers the truth and flees with both infants to California, where she is helped by her former agent and his wife.

May 04, Ljstubbs rated it did not like it. Food is important to Mrs Krantz: I’d rather have spent more time with the characters princees and enjoying the plot than wading through endless travelogue-style descriptions and skimming through pages and pages and still more pages of detail about the advertising field. Jun 30, Bhumika daisyy it liked it. Nov 06, Susan rated it really liked it Shelves: Well, that’s too much to say, but I read it so many times that I came close.

Not only did Valensky never employ unnecessary force on the bit and reins but he had been born, as some men are, with an instinct for establishing a communication between himself and his pony which made it seem as if the animal was merely an extension of his mind, rather than a beast with a will dais its own. She paints portraits of rich, horse-mad peoples’ children on ponies in order to pay Dani’s bills and also works in a demanding job at a production company that makes television commercials.
