Lynn Barber, by her own admission, has always suffered from a compelling sense of nosiness. An exceptionally inquisitive child, she constantly questioned everyone she knew about intimate details of their lives. This talent, coupled with her unusual lack of the very English fear of social embarrassment, is the perfect blend for a celebrity interviewer. A CURIOUS CAREER is a fascinating window into the lives of those she has interviewed, but also into the world of journalism itself.
