Book made me appreciate George Michael's Father Figure song & video on men (booker, photographer to talent agent) preying on vulnerable girls. if anything life stranger than fiction from low self-esteem husband's lawyer going around wife's trust fund to children to drugged out model finding gun & using on bad man.
There's a reason why modelling industry full of cliches from high risk behavior mercenary models to "let's make money" modeling agencies that poach & sabotage each other.
It used to be innocent started by well intention man ,but it got slimy & cutthroat as sex, drugs, horny straight men, high flying playboys were slowly added to the mix, modelling hourly rates shot upwards & modelling agency recruited globally from all walks of life instead of well educated ladies.
Strangest takeaway was learning Roy Cohn aka Trump's preferred hatchet man lawyer was a closet homosexual who used model as a eyecandy to emit he was a normal guy.
