Book excerpt: If you haven’t already heard, Vivian Livingston has become a permanent fixture under the bright lights of NYC, and she’s come a long way. It feels like only yesterday that Vivian boarded a bus for Manhattan and never—okay, rarely—looked back! She’s been a rule-breaker and the reluctant star of a Web site that bears her name, www.Vivianlives.com. She’s penned two bare-all novels, laid down a trio of turbulent tracks, and when the going got tough, she nearly let herself get swept away. Nearly. But through it all, with contagious and self-taught abandon, Vivian has maintained her mighty little mantra: “It is better to have tried and failed than to have never tried at all.” Rounding out her twenties with a completed professional and personal “to-do” list and finally on her own, sans a man and the good and the bad of past relationships, it’s with a mixture of careful calculation and sizzling spontaneity that Vivian embraces her adulthood with full force. Her next move? Well, that’s anyone’s guess. What does she really want? Who does she really want? And what is “success,” really? Alright, ladies: Start your engine, ’cause the debauchery is about to begin! What follows achievement and satisfied self-discovery? Well, according to Vivian, trouble, the good kind, and pure, unadulterated fun!
