Overview

Ever wanted to be that fly on the wall? To listen in on conversations that were meant to be intimate, private affairs? To overhear, verbatim, the words of famous entertainers, distinguished politicians, princes, potentates, and petty criminals? Welcome to an eavesdropper's jamboree, where you can revel in the real, unexpurgated words of real people in all their astonishing, appalling, and hilarious entirely - taken from sources like transcripts of testimony that was sealed, depositions that had been buried, recordings of exchanges that were cut from the official broadcasts, conversations considered so confidential, so off-the-record, so privileged and personal that we thought, Hey, why not share them with the whole world? Here is: Michael Jackson's housekeeper describing life chez Jacko; Prince Charles telling his lover his fondest hopes regarding reincarnation; pickup lines from Clarence Thomas; Senators Bob Dole and Alan Simpson trying to reach out and touch Saddam Hussein; Tommy Lasorda revealing what managers really say to pitchers out on the mound; Spike Lee on the importance of higher education; tobacco executives who can't quite make the connection between smoking and lung cancer; and lots more, word for regrettable word - in short, a feast of the famous and infamous caught with their guards down and their mikes on.

Based on the hit off-Broadway revue, Loose Lips offers readers the opportunity to listen in on the on- and off-the-record utterances of such famous celebrities as Prince Charles, Tommy Lasorda, Richard Nixon, Charlie Sheen, and Michael Jackson. 25 line drawings. HBO special this fall.
