1960: A stranger in a sports car offered sixteen-year-old
Lynn Barber a lift. It changed her life.
The stranger charmed his way not only into Lynn's life, but also that of her parents. He took her virginity, whisked her off to Paris, introduced her to his charming friends, and even offered to make her his wife. But he was neither who nor what he said he was. And only when Lynn's parents were on the point of accepting him into their family, did she realise the mistake she'd made in accepting that lift.
Lynn Barber shows how this strange affair coloured the rest of her life - what she wanted from men and her instinctive distrust of others.
