bringbirkin.jpgAFTER the best film ever, Anorak in New York brings you the world’s best book – ever!


Bringing Home The Birkin is a spoof, that much is certain, and were we not to know better we’d be certain it was taken from the manuscript of our own Ed Barrett.


His work still awaits publicatisn on accont of it being not half as funny as this obvious-yet-subtle parody:

Bringing Home the Birkin: My Life in Hot Pursuit of the World’s Most Coveted Handbag by Michael Tonello

Pitched as, “An insider’s hilarious, whirlwind account of his years spent globe-trotting in search of the holy grail of handbags: the Birkin….. Flirting with danger, Michael recounts the heady rush of hand delivering his first big score to famed songwriter Carole Bayer Sager in Paris….

Michael is a master raconteur who weaves together tales of hunting Birkins in the world’s most posh locales, memories of meals that would make any gastronome salivate, anecdotes of obsessed collectors with insatiable desires, and sweetly intimate stories about his family, friends, and finding true love.”

Look out for Anorak’s: Fashionably Latte and A Woman’s Right to Choos: Memoirs of a Heelholic.
