Picks and Pans Review: Confessions of a Sociopathic Social Climber

By Adèle Lang

Welcome to a year in the utterly vapid life of Brit chick Katya Livingston, an unfunny, unfeeling golddigger asked by her imprisoned accountant to keep a diary of her business expenses. Katya lands a tabloid column and stocks it with musings on her parasitic friends and all things Prada. In a plot twist cheesier than a zircon engagement ring, her columns lead to a star turn in a B-movie. This journal—selected by Kelly Ripa for her Live book club—is 364 entries too long. (Thomas Dunne/St. Martin's, $22.95)

Bottom Line: Manolo blah-blah-blah
