“schadenfreude” is a lovely german word that means “the joy we take in observing the misfortunes of others” — more or less — and that’s what today’s podcast is all about.
“oh the glory of it all” is the name of the new memoir from sean wilsey, a young man who grew up in the highest strata of San Francisco and lived to tell the tale.
It’s a wildly entertaining story of scheming women, adolescent angst, globe-hopping publicity stunts and the general creepy weirdness of growing up in san francisco high society. shades of armistead maupin’s “fictional” book series “tales of the city”. what fun!
…and have i mentioned that the lawsuits have already begun? click on the photo of the “wicked stepmother” below for some local newspaper coverage and delightful photos…
