Описание

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.

Vanity Fair photo editor Rachel DeLoache Williams's new friend Anna Delvey, a self-proclaimed German heiress, was worldly and ambitious. She was also generous—picking up the tab for lavish dinners at Le Coucou, infrared sauna sessions at HigherDOSE, drinks at the 11 Howard Library bar, and regular workout sessions with a celebrity personal trainer.

When Anna proposed an all-expenses-paid trip to Marrakech at the five-star La Mamounia hotel, Rachel jumped at the chance. But when Anna's credit cards mysteriously stopped working, the dream vacation quickly took a dark turn. Anna asked Rachel to begin fronting costs—first for flights, then meals and shopping, and, finally, for their $7,500-per-night private villa. Before Rachel knew it, more than $62,000 had been charged to her credit cards. Anna swore she would reimburse Rachel the moment they returned to New York.

Back in Manhattan, the repayment never materialized, and a shocking pattern of deception emerged. Rachel learned that Anna had left a trail of deceit—and unpaid bills—wherever she'd been. Mortified, Rachel contacted the district attorney, and in a stunning turn of events, found herself helping to bring down one of the city's most notorious con artists.

With breathless pacing and in-depth reporting from the person who experienced it firsthand, My Friend Anna is an unforgettable true story of money, power, greed, and female friendship.

    An interesting book. I personally would have like to have heard less about the luxurious locations they went to and more about her reflections on Anna as a person. Would recommend.

    Really great listen. Basically a slow motion train wreck. Narrators voice was very pleasant

    Good story but would have preferred more creative story telling. Too long, too detailed. Started to feel tedious.

    While readers will be sympathetic to the one-dimensional narrator who sees the best in people, the book lacks depth and regrettably is not a character analysis of the fascinating, scheming, bold Anna. Perhaps Anna truly is too mysterious to understand fully, but this was too tactical to satisfy my curiosity.

    Writer is disgustingly privileged & she should really be ashamed. Would have rather read a book written by Anna Delvey herself. Blows my mind “author” doesn’t realize how whiny she sounds. I am so glad I didn’t spend $ on this.

    Indulgent, myopic case study of narcissism and privilege. No insight into characters motivations or psychology—no effort to explore backgrounds. Written in a whining tone by an author intent on playing the victim instead of being accountable, listen to this book to enjoy hours of detailed conversations with American Express and about 10% plot and character development. I listened tot he end hoping she would stop navel gazing but she didn’t learn anything except playing the victim gets you a book deal. I teach university and even my first-years are better writers—and more insightful people—than this shallow writer.

    Anyone can be fooled, especially the isolated & lonely if the circumstances are right. This was the insight of the author. Unfortunately, she was conned by a sociopath. I found this book to hold lessons for all who may encounter the parasites in life that feed off of the innocent. I enjoyed the book. Written with honesty.

    I really enjoyed this audiobook. The authors transformation through her trauma was fascinating.
