The editor writes: It is a rich, colourful portrayal of how the other side live and how the other side royally fuck up their entitled lives. It was so detailed with the litany of nannies and au pairs passing through the children’s lives, often via their father’s bed, only marked by the nicknames Marlena and Hugo give them.
