Four of the best book quotes about putting on a perfect front
  1. #1
    “But her obsessions tended to be fueled by competition: She needed to dazzle men and jealous-ify women: Of course Amy can cook French cuisine and speak fluent Spanish and garden and knit and run marathons and day-trade stocks and fly a plane and look like a runway model doing it.

Competition doesn’t interest them.”
