Amanda Filipacchi’s fourth book


The Looks
I found this article by accident and didn’t realise that it was written by Amanda Filipacchi until a reference to her previous books came up. It seems that she is bringing out her new book in February titled “The Unfortunate Importance of Beauty”.

None of my novels had been autobiographical, but after writing them, I was starting to feel that while I wasn’t writing from life; life was writing from me.

Interesting article that resonates with my lifestyle over the last 20 years or so.

Being an outsider was fine by me. The beauty of being a nomadic correspondent is you detach yourself from the flaws of the society you’re immersed in while soaking up the best it has to offer. You’re an observer. You have no stake. You’re just passing through.
