Summary:

Soaked, nay, marinated in the world of vintage Hollywood, Tell-All is a Sunset Boulevard inflected homage to Old Hollywood and a hilarious assault on celebrity.

Hazie Coogan has for decades tended to the outsized needs of Katherine Miss Kathie Kenton, a larger-than-life star who has survived multiple marriages, career comebacks, cosmetic surgeries, and emotional dramas. But danger lurks with the arrival of a gentleman caller named Webster Carlton Westward III, who worms his way into Miss Kathie's heart and boudoir. Hazie discovers that this bounder has already written his celebrity tell-all memoir, which foretells Miss Kathie's death in a forthcoming Lillian Hellman penned musical extravaganza. As the body count mounts, Hazie must execute a plan to save Katherine Kenton for her fans and for posterity.

"Few contemporary writers mix the outrageous and the hilarious with greater zest.Chuck Palahniuk's splenetic, anarchic glee makes him a worthy heir to Ken Kesey.' Newsday

    I like Chuck Palahniuk's books. Usually I just sit back and let the story wash over me knowing at some point everything will click. This book was a fail on both counts. The readers voice was annoying so I couldn't just relax into the reading and enjoy the words. The plot was so obvious that there was no surprise or point where things clicked. Rant is one of my favorite of Chuck's books and I'd recommend re-listening to that then to read this one.
