For 3 years, Jennifer Buhl was a Paparazza (that’s feminine singular for paparazzi) in Los Angeles, one of the 5 women in a profession that has always been driven by testosterone. Her pictures of the stars have been published worldwide. Her photographs of Paris Hilton clutching a Bible and of Kristen Stewart smoking pot with her boyfriend the week of the opening of Twilight have achieved iconic status.
This book is not only fascinating, it is also extremely well written. The action is non-stop. It’s hysterically funny as when the author provides a tip sheet on how to avoid paparazzis or where to pee when you are on a celebrity stake out. Also lots of Hollywood tittle-tattle that we all love.
It’s not really a slick book of celeb exploitation, though. For instance, we learn about the complicated interrelationship between the stars and the photographers, a relationship that is more symbiotic than predatory. A lot of the stars call the paps up before they go shopping.
The author is far from the sleazy predator that often characterize paparazzis. She’s funny, engaging and has a respect for the stars.
