    Seem to think that book was written by Judith the Krantz, actually.  I believe Ellid discussed The Woman Krantz and her work in a diary a few weeks ago.

    Yes, Princess Daisy was quite distracting and was also made into a movie for TV.  Krantz is another writer whose novels are "easy reads, or mind-candy," if you can overlook the extreme self-aggrandizement and self-absorption of most of her characters.  Daisy wasn't nasty, but almost every other character in that book was "grody to the max" as we used to say many years ago.

    Glad to hear that Daisy distracted you from what you were going through.  When one is in physical or emotional pain it definitely helps to be transported to another world, so to speak. So in that sense Daisy was a blessing for you.

    I read one of Krantz's last books, Dazzle, in the smallest room in the house.  It practically demanded to be read in the Throne Room.
