I enjoyed this book very much. I always turn to the last page of VF to read the Proust interview before I read the magazine. This is a collection of same. Insightful in some cases, frivolous in others..all are cool!

Proust did not lose any time, when he wanted to understand human nature. Almost a century later, his questionnaire still elicits amazing insights ! For some reason, people tend to try to beat the smartness of the questions, by circumventing them or issuing outrageous answers.

The result: you get to know the true personalities of the answerers better than through any other means.

It is great fun !

The very best part of Vanity Fair in one book. Brilliant Character drawings of some of the world's most popular people sharing some of their inner self.

My friend and I loved reading these at school. So I knew this would be the perfect gift for her. And she LOVED it. Great bathroom or coffeetable read. Great artwork and very diverse group of people interviewed.

Nice book, attractive and high quality.
Enjoy the monthly questions asked in Vanity Fair so this book was a gift to myself.
I doubt most people have asked themselves, or answered, the questions Proust made famous as parlor games. Some of the celebrity answers are insightful, some irreverent, some surprising.
