"A namedropping delight, full of brushups with the rich and famous—Bing had a several years’ long affair with artist Ed Ruscha, was close friends with Mama Cass and hobnobbed with plenty of actors. Bing can turn a lovely phrase... The book really comes alive near the end when curiosity about homeless kids in Venice, Calif., leads her to write an article that unexpectedly launches her journalism career." —Publishers Weekly

Leon is one hell of a writer. From her true-crime nonfiction to her NY Times bestseller expose on gangs DO OR DIE, she will draw you in with a single word.
This piece is better still because its about HER, a fashion model, who hung out with legendary artists, big name musicians, and infamous actors. She not only knew them, she observed them with an intuition, a sensitivity and an intellect rare in such a beauty. Don't miss this first-hand account of an important time in our cultural history.
