Chuck Palahniuk: Tell-All.


Our narrator is Hazie Coogan, who for decades has tended to the oversized needs of Katherine "Miss Kathie" Kenton, a star of the wattage of Elisabeth Taylor and the emotional torments of Judy Garland. The survivor of multiple marriages, career comebacks and cosmetic surgeries, Miss Kathie lives the way legends should. But danger lurks when gentleman caller Webster Carlton Westward III arrives and worms his way into her heart and boudoir. Hazie discovers that this bounder has already written his celebrity tell-all memoir, which foretells her death in a forthcoming Liilian Hellman-penned World War II musical extravaganza Unconditional Surrender, in which Miss Kathie's character defeats Japanese forces from Pearl Harbour to Nagasaki. A hilarious assault on celebrity, Tell-All is vintage Palahniuk!
