This scandal involved hiding debts, inflating revenues and corruption. It resulted to the displacement of more than 20,000 people, the death of “America’s Most Innovative Company” for six years in a row and the dissolution of one of the Big 5 global accounting firms (Arthur Andersen).

Borel is a brilliant humourist with a true gift for creating descriptive passages that are both jarring and painfully (if unconventionally) accurate.But she’s equally capable of presenting her most vulnerable self, whether that means sharing uncomfortable truths about her ugliest moments or inviting the reader to witness the profound love she has for her eccentric father. And because Borel is herself such a compelling character with such a strong and engaging voice, the experience of reading Corked feels like a whirlwind introduction/vacation/celebration with a dazzlingly charismatic new acquaintance.I was hugely disappointed. This is a self indulgent piece that has no business on store shelves.
