    Okay Here s the thing I can t give you an average American reader a reason to buy and read British author Nicholas Coleridge s new book The Glossy Years Magazines, Museums, and Selected Memoirs Except for the fact that Coleridge now in his middle 60 s has led a very interesting life and is an excellent writer He s known as a glossy magazine executive for Conde Nast, the director of London s Victoria and Albert Museum, and the author of six or so novels, most of which are about the British upper and middle classes His novels show an almost pitch perfect look at both those aspiring and those who have already made it.This book, The Glossy Years , is mainly about his career at Conde Nast and the um personalities he s met along the way, both at work and in society About half were names I didn t recognise but I found they were interesting to read about And Nick Coleridge is not a mean writer he really has nice things to write about everyone in the book No real secrets are revealed oh, Princess Diana s breast size is discussed a bit but then Diana makes almost everyone s memoirs of the last forty years.Anybody familiar with my reading habits sort of knows that I m both a British Royals Junkie , as well as a Demented Brit Junkie I have known and read about Demented Brits than almost anyone else from the hinterlands of the United States has a right to And, amazingly, Nicholas Coleridge s memoirs are about fairly normal Brits who have managed to pop up between the demented ones and stayed sane His book is delightful reading, but I can t blame anyone for not being interested in the subject Check out his novels, if you re not interested in his memoirs.
