Reviews and the Single Zillionaire

The reviews for 73-year-old KP venture capital eminence grise Tom Perkins’ first novel (Sex and Single Zillionaire) are coming in, and they’re good fun. Here’s Bloomberg:

Perkins’s crisp prose — honed on years of crafting stock prospectuses, no doubt — propels the story through waves of superlatives. When Steven first meets Jessie, she’s described as “startling beautiful: tall, black hair, brilliant blue eyes, and a look in her sculpted face of refinement and intrigue. Her complexion was extraordinary, her figure marvelous, her vesting provisions alluring.”

Okay, okay, I added the bit about the vesting provisions. But you get the idea.
