Fay Weldon interviews Katie Price – aka glamour model Jordan who used to be famous for her 32G breasts – for The Times. Now, and this makes me smile, she is known for her books with a third autobiography soon to be released. It’s an interesting interview.
Jordan has produced a third volume of autobiography, called Pushed to the Limit. Hence this interview, though the book is embargoed, so I haven’t been able to read it. But I am given the other two, glossily packaged; on them, a high-coloured Jordan, airbrushed into a shape that no real woman ever was, come-hithering with green eyes. I pick them up with initial distaste, but stay to read them with pleasure. They are surprisingly readable, simple tales, partly ghost-written ? she talks, someone else records and embellishes ? of straightforward lust and rejected love. Books don’t best-sell for no reason.
