IS FAME REALLY WORTH THE TROUBLE?

Aspiring cartoonist Catherine "Cat" Gold earns her living as a celebrity assistant in uptown Manhattan, while navigating the cramped downtown spaces of life, love, and alternative art. Her boss is Rochelle "Rocky" Love, a celebrated 1970s feminist and has-been '80s radio and television star who is convinced she can forge a '90s comeback with an autobiography.

But the ghostwriter hired to glorify her life instead reveals a battleground of treachery and hypocrisy, littered with lies and sex that cross all the boundaries. When Cat herself experiences Rocky's duplicity and learns that the icon is a fraud, she is fueled by a sense of disappointment and conspires with the ghostwriter to reveal the unspeakable truth about their narcissistic boss.

I didn't like this book at all. It's not up to Katia's usual standards. It's not a mystery, so I guess I was really disappointed. I definitely don't recommend it. I've enjoyed other books by her.

Of all the Katia Lief books I've read, this one through me for a loop. The writing was awful, the storyline was awful and I barely got thru the book.

Waste of time, after half the book I gave up! Not my cup of tea ... loved some of her other titles.
