Now, bestselling author Gerrie Lim, Annabel’s longtime friend and confidant, revisits those events and reexamines those scenarios to shed new light on her legend, to discover why such an enduring curiosity about her exists, and to learn why she is still regarded in her own native Singapore as something akin to a mythological figure.
As Lim writes, "she did this gangbang as a gender studies/liberal- progressive/feminist statement to subvert gender stereotypes, but no one got it.” This book, featuring many of the author’s own conversations and correspondences with Annabel over the years, is the first serious inquiry into the fascinating persona of a seldomdiscussed, yet often secretly venerated, Asian celebrity.

The author tried to make a study on the impact of fame, a treaty on psychology and sociology plus a critique on an authoritarian regime but it is all based on a personality that had her 15 minutes more than a decade ago, and does not seam to have had a big impact even then. The result is repetitive and boring, it is a hard book to finish and feels like reading the source material, the draft and the book plus the NYT review all at the same time.
