Book Description

Celebrities Peter Ustinov * Julia Nickson * Pierce Brosnan * Michael Jackson * Rob Lowe
Asia's Superstars Anita Mui *  Leslie Cheung * Hideki Saijo

IN HONG KONG at the time author James Clavell's Noble House was being made into a television series, journalist Hope Barrett's sartorial retrospective on getting an interview with the right celebrities is humorous, witty; comes with the tale of a faith healer channelling ten minor gods and, oh, a bomb in a shopping mall too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, honest, witty, and humorous... March 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be entertaining, amusing, and quite reflective. Ms. Barrett captures a unique moment in time as she tells of her life as a young, reluctant --yet persevering-- reporter caught in the jungle that is Hong Kong. We are offered a glimpse into her life as we meet some of her co-workers and tag along with her as she interviews a select handful of celebrities. Her honesty and cynicism are mixed with a healthy dose of sharp wit and a dash of humor that keeps the reader engaged. Well worth every digital penny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Forget Heels by Hope Barrett September 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Very interesting book. Divided by topic and chapters. It provides a window into her life as a journalist in a foreign country and darn it is either Singapore or Hong Kong I really enjoyed the humor and the stories of her trials and tribulations of her life there. I liked it.
