Am reading "Memoirs of the Devil" by Roger Vadim right now

Roger Vadim being a filmmaker who was married to Brigitte Bardot, Jane Fonda, and Catherine Deveuve, and who made sexploitation films like Barbarella. Vadim was a noted Decadent, and his personal take on himself is entertaining. I first saw the book at Book Beat in Oak Park, MI, on my trip, and was going to buy it but their copy cost $35. After getting home I thought to myself that like many obscure but valuable books that have had large print runs this one would be offered online for next to nothing by people who didn't realize how sort of desirable it was. I was right, and got it for next to nothing through ABE.
