A sharp witty and acute novel that exposes celebrity and image-obsessed Hollywood Carol Wolper writes in 'coolly conversational staccato prose that reads like a collaboration between Jackie Collins and Mickey Spillane' Publishers Weekly After a decade in the business, Christine Chase is a freshly-divorced thirty-five year old filmmaker suffering from a major life slump. So the big question for her is: How do you jump-start a life afflicted by the double whammy of personal and professional ambivalence? Deliverance comes in the form of a subject for a film: Richard Gault, famously elusive, mythically cool actor and musician who went underground in the seventies rather than sell-out. Christine is inspired to find him and to document her quest on film, so like a Hunter S. Thompson in Gucci stilettos, she sets off. Along the way, she gathers around her a hip and motley crew and learns a great deal about life, love and the price of fame. Hilariously acute and right on the money, Secret Celebrity is the perfect sharp-eyed novel for our celebrity-obsessed times.
