5つ星のうち 1.0 If you're going to stab someone, first learn how to wield a knife. 2010/7/26
By N. NATALE - (Amazon.com)
Amazon.co.jpで購入済み
Recently I've been reading several of Kitty Kelley's bios of iconic American celebrities of the past and present: Oprah, Frank Sinatra, Liz Taylor, Jackie O, Nancy Reagan, the Royals, etc. The only one I couldn't get into or through was about the Bush family; that one was a snorefest of too many details backgrounding Bush forebears. Kelley is not a great writer and it does seem odd that everyone she profiles is a thoroughly rotten snake. However, she is able to move the books along and I did get a kick out of reading some gossipy trash about the rich and famous (and dead).

When I saw this bio of Kelley herself on Amazon, I thought I'd give it a try, but after reading, then skimming it for a while, I tossed it aside. I consider it poorly written, puerile and totally dull. It attempts to dig the dirt on Kelley but fails to find anything and substitutes innuendo and insinuation. Don't waste your money and time on this boring pile of mush written by someone with the writing skills of a sixth grader.

5つ星のうち 2.0 Pot Calls the Kettle Black 2012/8/31
By Lynda in Oregon - (Amazon.com)
This "unauthorized biography of Kitty Kelley" turns the tables on the scandal-mongering celebrity biographer, claiming not only that her tell-alls about Jackie Kennedy, Frank Sinatra, and Nancy Reagan (among others) are rehashes, innuendo, manipulation, and outright fabrication, but also claims Kelley herself has plenty of skeletons in her closet.

This looks like a case of pots and kettles, as author Carpozi himself is a celebrity biographer, and staff writer for The Star magazine, which is a slightly (very slightly) classier cousin of The National Enquirer. In a couple of cases (those of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Frank Sinatra), he and Kelley chose the same targets - er, subjects. One must wonder how much of his journalistic indignation is based on stolen thunder. His tell-all tome is published by Barricade Books, whose website says "We are a publicity-driven publisher, and only accept books with authors committed to promoting themselves and their titles." Carpozi admirably fills that position, placing himself pretty squarely in the action throughout Poison Pen.

Carpozi takes Kelley to task on several occasions because, he says, the dates cited in her Author's Notes for various interviews are unlikely or demonstrably false. (The classic is an interview she claimed to have had with actor Peter Lawford on a date almost two weeks after his death.) He avoids this kind of embarrassment for his own work by not providing interview dates at all when quoting sources. Carpozi also sprinkles quotes randomly through the text in ways that make it difficult to determine who is supposedly speaking, mangles the English language on more than one occasion (confusing "cache" and "cachet" in one case and consistently mis-using hypenated word forms in others - silly mistakes which any good copy editor should have caught), and allows errors of fact to creep in, such as saying that the Ronald McDonald House provides "care and comfort for children afflicted with [cancer]" when in fact it provides lodging for the families of such children.

Kelley's no saint. Nor is she a particularly objective biographer. Whether or not this makes Carpozi's constant harping on her physical appearance appropriate is something the reader will have to decide. It's slightly easier to decide whether or not to give this sleaze-fest a pass. That's a slam-dunk. Either find something else to read or stock up on antiseptic handwipes.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Trashes the Trasher 2000/6/21
By Steven Fantina - (Amazon.com)
Kitty Kelley must have never heard the old aphorism, "don't dish it out, if you can't take it" because this unauthorized biography caused her considerable well publicized consternation. Her response is certainly understandable because the referenced source materials certainly surpass the innuendo and outright sophistry of her books, and the charges against her are severe. From shoplifting to rampant dishonesty (that allegation should cause little surprise among those familiar with her work), to uninhibited sexual hi-jinks, Carpozi throws it all at Kelley, and it certainly is enjoyable watching him score so many bull's eyes. His most striking charge is the strong possibility that Kelley gave birth to an illegitimate child in her much younger days. While that may never be proven, there is no denying that she has given birth to a huge body of illegitimate literature that has disgraced her far more than it could ever hurt her intended targets.

5つ星のうち 3.0 Not What I Was Expecting 2013/8/10

I really didn't finish this book. Made it halfway through and lost interest. Perhaps the author was saving the bast for last, I don't know.
