...the Sorokin scam [has] everything: glamour, greed, lust for power, great clothes (or at least expensive ones), rich people being ripped off, cameos by fellow millennial con artists like "Pharma Bro" and the Fyre Festival organizers, and lots of satisfying clichés about the rotten core of the Big Apple.
An intimate, methodical look at the pair's relationship.
My Friend Anna is sensational.
My Friend Anna is the dishy story you've been craving ever since Anna Delvey first made headlines... a harrowing account of what it's like to be conned.
Beach reads should be light, fun, and serve a lot dish. That's why number one on my summer reading list is My Friend Anna: The True Story of a Fake Heiress by Rachel DeLoache Williams.
It is everything I wanted it to be and more. A deep dive around New York's coolest bars and hippest hangouts and a tale of two girls that blurs the lines between friend and freelancer.
A Catch Me If You Can for the internet age ... What Anna did was make Instagram flesh.
At a time when we are obsessed with true-crime ... Anna Sorokin is the real deal. That doesn't make it right. But oh, it tastes good.
Totally gripping ... impossible to put down for the duration, My Friend Anna is undeniably one of the summer's most compelling reads.
A powerful reminder that you should think twice before trusting even your friends with large sums of money.
Anna looked at the soul of New York and recognized that if you distract people with shiny objects, they will be virtually unable to see anything else. And the thing was: it was so easy.
A fascinating memoir.
A cautionary tale for today's throwaway society.
