not as good as netflix recommends

can someone, anyone, explain this recommendation to me? how does one go from a grisly account of murder in a small town that invents a new genre of writing (the true crime novel) to the chickiest of chick lit? actually, since i just finished norman mailers "the executioners song" and am reading "a total waste of makeup" its surprisingly accurate. but, since i checked one out of the library and was given the other by my mom, they couldnt know that...right?!

Dear Customer,

We've noticed that customers who have expressed interest in In Cold Blood by Truman Capote have also ordered Diplomatic Baggage: The Adventures of a Trailing Spouse by Brigid Keenan.

For this reason, you might like to know that Brigid Keenan's Diplomatic Baggage: The Adventures of a Trailing Spouse is now available. You can order your copy for just $11.86 ($2.09 off the list price) by following the link below.

Brigid Keenan was a glamorous and successful young London fashion journalist. But falling in love with a diplomat saw her leave behind the gilt chairs of the Paris salons for a large chicken shed in the forests of Nepal. Thirty years later (at the farewell party for the Papal Nuncio in Kazakhstan), Brigid found herself wondering whether her decision had been the right one. This is her marvelous account of life as a "trailing spouse"—an endlessly engaging tale of diplomatic protocol, difficult teenagers, homesickness, frustrated career aspirations, witch doctors, and giant jumping spiders.
