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.
