Description

"Dead Stars is the London Fields of Los Angeles, the Ulysses of TMZ culture-an immensely literate, fearsomely interior novel about people who are neither."-Tom Bissell, GQ At age thirteen, Telma is famous as the world's youngest breast cancer survivor until threatened with obscurity by a four-year-old who's just undergone a mastectomy. Reeyonna believes that auditioning for pregnant teenage porn will help fulfill her dream of befriending Kanye West. Jackie, a photographer once celebrated for arty nudes of her young daughter, is working at a Sears Family Portrait boutique. And Oscar-winning Michael Douglas searches for meaning while his wife, Catherine, guest-stars on Glee. Moving forward with the inexorable force of a tsunami, Dead Stars is Bruce Wagner's most lavish and remarkable translation yet of the national zeitgeist: post-privacy porn culture, a Kardashianworld of rapid-cycling, disposable narrative where reality-show triumph is the new American narcotic. From the Trade Paperback edition.
