Everything I Forgot in my Search for an Unreal Life
A travel memoir about memory, money, myopia, and men.At twenty-three, Lizzie leaves her native New Zealand to work for VIP billionaires in a remote oil-rich oasis. Legally forbidden to talk about her employers, she calls their country 'Xamnesia.' The place has its perks, such as hugging Michael Jackson and receiving diamond watches, but it's also a rabbit hole that quells a gal's self-confidence. Even transferred to Paris, she depends on champagne, cigarettes, and hotel concierges on speed dial to help fulfill all VIP requests. Will smuggling a million dollars be what snaps her out of her fog? And can she forge a real life after so many years in 'Xamnesia'?.
An illuminating, no-holds-barred memoir about about ping-ponging around the world in search of yourself.
