Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER​
ONE OF TIME’S 100 BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR

Sex and the City meets Bad Blood and Catch Me if You Can in the astonishing true story of Anna Delvey, a young con artist posing as an heiress in New York City—as told by the former Vanity Fair photo editor who got seduced by her friendship and then scammed out of more than $62,000.

Rachel DeLoache Williams’s new friend Anna Delvey, a self-proclaimed German heiress, was worldly and ambitious. She was also generous—picking up the tab for lavish dinners at Le Coucou, infrared sauna sessions at HigherDOSE, drinks at the 11 Howard Library bar, and regular workout sessions with a celebrity personal trainer.

When Anna proposed an all-expenses-paid trip to Marrakech at the five-star La Mamounia hotel, Rachel jumped at the chance. But when Anna’s credit cards mysteriously stopped working, the dream vacation quickly took a dark turn. Anna asked Rachel to begin fronting costs—first for flights, then meals and shopping, and, finally, for their $7,500-per-night private villa. Before Rachel knew it, more than $62,000 had been charged to her credit cards. Anna swore she would reimburse Rachel the moment they returned to New York.

Back in Manhattan, the repayment never materialized, and a shocking pattern of deception emerged. Rachel learned that Anna had left a trail of deceit—and unpaid bills—wherever she’d been. Mortified, Rachel contacted the district attorney, and in a stunning turn of events, found herself helping to bring down one of the city’s most notorious con artists.

With breathless pacing and in-depth reporting from the person who experienced it firsthand, My Friend Anna is an unforgettable true story of “glamour, greed, lust for power” (The New York Times), and female friendship.

Good read

It was a good insight into the lives of both girls but the only thing I didn’t care for was the back and forth text. I knew Rachel was innocent of wrong doing and she was used by Anna but she spent an large majority of the book clearing her name.

One of the best books I’ve read

Rachel is an exceptional and intelligent writer. This is one of the best books I have read in a very long time. She is wise beyond her years and extremely strong for being able to write about her trauma and betrayal like this. My favorite quote “Attention has value… be careful where you spend it and understand the cost”.
Well done.

A great book

I, like many other people, have been fascinated by the story of Anna Sorokina, aka Anna Delvey, and this book is what first got me interested! Ms Williams is a wonderful narrator, and I truly felt like I was along for the ride!
