Speaking about Iconoclast Icon Tonci said I have been more than surprised when Victoria contacted me with the idea of writing a book based on my life. At first, I was reserved and a bit of suspicious about the whole project, but it all changed after I got to know Victoria and realized how devoted and methodical she is about the book.
