about this item

I am a ****** and do not regret it. I know what I did and I always knew what I should have done.Thomas Spencer knows how to get everything his heart desires even though his poor health and aging appearance are the price he's had to pay. He sees them as scars he bravely wears and doesn't have room for remorse in his life.Lately though, a strange feeling has taken over him, and since his last cardiac episode, he feels as if he's reaching the end of a chapter in his life. In his solace, he finds himself in his luxurious Brooklyn apartment over thinking his life and existence, questioning his decisions, and asking himself if it would be any different had he led the life he intentionally avoided.Reminiscing on the moments that have until now, lead to his successful career as a publicist and communications advisor in New York and London throughout the 90's, Navarro masterfully describes the shady mechanisms of those who control the powerful world of politics and media.Powerful and heart-breaking, the narrative is an unvarnished account, told in the first person, of a complex and destructive personality whose major satisfaction is to shatter the happiness of those who surround him, even the ones he loves. The shameless confession of Thomas Spencer relentlessly provokes the reader and it makes us see the nature of power in all its rawness through the life of the biggest of ******.
