What I thought I would read in this biography was how Isabella Blow made a name for herself in the world of fashion and helped launch the careers of people such as Sophie Dahl Alexander Mcueen and Philip Treacy What I found was her husband Detmar using her as an excuse to write about himself To complain about how unfair life had been to him how poor he was and name drop Issie the apparent love of his life tells him it s over but then he opens the door of his gallery to Princess Rosario of Bulgaria and her husband Prince Kyril Let s hope that made up for it His matter of fact style of writing left me feeling disturbed because I had been a voyeur into the lives of two very troubled souls

I don t know where to begin I can t help wondering why and how this book was written not to mention that just trying to decipher meaning and sense out of it is made far complicated by having to slog through typographical and grammatical errors Has HarperCollins Publishers laid off their proofreaders I will give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they haveI don t know anything about Detmar Blow that I didn t learn in the pages or on the back flap of this book I don t know anything about Tom Sykes either who apparently co wrote this book with Detmar Blow except that he has a sister named Plum who has written a few vacuous books of fiction and gets articles published in magazines like Vanity Fair and VogueI m sure a simple Google search would yield a good deal information about all of these real life characters but I ve got to go put my laundry in the dryer Throughout the book are printed sentences with the subjective pronoun used as an object as on page 222 she was kicking Issie and I out of Hilles on page 229 Dr Wolfson told Issie and I that her depression was very very serious Maybe I just don t know this but is this common in Brit speak Every time I came across one of those lines and it seemed to be every few pages I found myself reading it as so and so told I that just to reinforce that it was indeed grammatically incorrect but hey what do I know BlowSykes are the ones with a published book and HarperCollins is the one who published itAnd that s just one of the technical details There are numerous others misspellings missing punctuation etc but the actual content itself was almost disturbing and not in a good way It seemed at times that some sentences were just thrown together for the sole purpose of being able to drop names and places as blatantly as possible like on page 176 for instance where it says David Thomas originally a plumber s assistant from a village in Gloucestershire who went to Hollywood and found fame working with Angelina Jolie and Mariah Carey There are so many random sentences especially as the book wears on and on and on that seem to have no purpose or place whatsoever in the larger apparent context of the chapter such as this one on page 208At the end of our sojourn in Iceland Issie flew back to Paris and I carried on to JFK In New York I stayed with Issie s cousin Aeneas who lived at 260 West Broadway in Tribeca Aeneas pointed out the Twin Towers not far downtownA friend of mine the artist Jim Lambie was also in New YorkAfter the Twin Towers went down on 911 I discovered that Jim had been artist in residence in the North Tower on the 90th floor A friend told me not to worry as he never went thereyawnThe fact that five readers gave this book 4 or 5 stars on com surely must mean that at least four of them are personal friends of one of the authorsUltimately I finished this book no better informed no moved and even less inclined to learn than when I started it Even the photographs included in the book leave the reader entirely unsatisfied The real tragedy here is that the subject of the book comes off ultimately as nothing than an insecure and superficial woman whose sole aim in life was to get as much attention and money as possible using her privilege status and connection grew up with a sense of entitlement that never panned out and ultimately gave up because she could no longer tolerate her own reflection in the mirror or the empty but beautiful and well dressed characters surrounding her Besides when Anna Wintour comes off looking compassionate you know something is amiss
