“Sex and the City meets Catch Me if You Can in the astonishing true story of Anna Delvey, a young con artist posing as a German heiress in New York City—as told by the former Vanity Fair photo editor who got seduced by her friendship and then scammed out of more than $62,000.”
I read about this ‘Anna’ around a year ago and found the story of her deception to be wild. How could someone manipulate so many people and businesses for so long without anyone realizing? When I saw that Rachel, who was one of the many people Anna fooled, had published this book, I immediately put it on my too read list.
I’ll be the first to say that I’m the worst at reading non-fiction. I had preachy self help books. I find a lot of memoirs pretensions. However, since one of my goals for 2019 was to read more diverse topics, I decided to go fully embrace Non-Fiction November and ‘My Friend Anna‘ fit perfectly into this theme.
