Overview

Hollywood Hack: Adventures of a Celebrity Wannabe 
is a heartfelt account of what extreme obsession with celebrity can do to ordinary people. Its narrator, Robert Kerwin, loved being surrounded by celebrities: Cruise, Newman, Streisand, Hepburn, Nicholson, The Duke, Kojak and the Fonz. You name them, he knew them.

As celebrity profiler for hundreds of media outlets,
 the author tells the story of someone desperately needing to be Somebody, and believing celebrity is the answer.
In this often hilarious and sometimes heartrending portraiture of celebrity, Robert Kerwin recounts working his way up the celebrity ladder and becoming hooked by the allure and endless possibilities that seem to come with fame and fortune.

Along the way he meets hundreds of celebrities that are revealed as brittle and often wicked caricatures of themselves.

Hollywood Hack is peppered with pertinent anecdotes (including many confrontational scenes) about every star from Mae West to Tom Cruise and beyond; also it takes a good look at the inner workings of high-end celebrity journalism.

Though brimming with household names, this is not another dose of cool, slick Hollywood trivia tell-all. The protagonist here is non-cool and non-slick; Hollywood Hack is about Us and Them.
