Love this lede*:
IF NIGELLA LAWSON did not exist it would be necessary for someone - India Knight, say, or Marian Keyes - to invent her. Her life story has all the ingredients of a chick-lit bestseller: celebrity, beauty, tragedy, politics, food, wealth, marriage to a restless and elusive art dealer - and a hint of fetishistic sex.
But seriously, can anyone name a chick-lit bestseller that even remotely contains that many interesting story elements? 5 out of 8 even?

*If you're curious, it's from an article about the branding of inexplicable culinary sensation Jamie Oliver.
