Story of My Life by Jay McInerney

This has always been one of my favorite books. I read it many years ago and it’s a book I continuously go back to every now and again. Little known fact, the story is based upon the life of Rielle Hunter – the woman who had the affair with Presidential nominee John Edwards.

“Where was Planned Parenthood when we really needed them?”

“Do anything you are willing to admit and always tell the truth.”

“If there’s one thing I hate, it’s dishonesty. Drives me crazy. I hate liars and hypocrites. And I’m not too big on wimps either.”
