Sarah Karmali writes, "A prolific poster on Twitter and Instagram, Peaches appeared to be living the happiest years of her life; her feeds were flooded with joyful pictures of family and friends, as well as her passionate and occasionally controversial opinions. We knew that her sons had created homemade Easter cards and that she’d recently enjoyed dinner at Hakkasan with one of her sisters; we learned that she’d seen and liked the film Nymphomaniac, that she had read Magick by Aleister Crowley and enjoyed listening to Cat Power’s new album. One of Peaches’ Instagram pictures was surely worth a thousand red carpet moments, for all the intimacy it held; we felt we knew everything about her."
