IS FAME REALLY WORTH ALL 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.

Praise for USA Today and international bestseller Katia Lief's novels:"Wonderfully funny and terribly true."--Fay Weldon"Urban, hip, sad, funny, a tipsy walk on the wild side."--Malcolm Bosse"Taut, clean storytelling." --Publishers Weekly"Readers will want to read more of this talented writer's work." --New York Journal of Books
