Book Description

2 Jun 2011

'Every word he's written about me is a lie including "and" and "the"...'

For decades Hazie Coogan has tended to the outsized needs of Katherine 'Miss Kathie' Kenton, a star of the wattage of Elizabeth 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 Miss Kathie's heart and boudoir. Hazie discovers that this bounder has already written his celebrity tell-all memoir and that it foretells her death in a forthcoming Lillian Hellman-penned World War II musical extravaganza Unconditional Surrender, in which Miss Kathie portrays Lily defeating Japanese forces from Pearl Harbor to Nagasaki. As the body count mounts, Hazie must execute a plan to save Katherine Kenton for her fans - and for posterity...

Review

"Blackly hilarious...full of brilliantly acid one-liners...a gripping, outrageous and stylishly written hoot" (News Of The World)

"Chuck turns his gimlet and razor sharp pen on celebrity, with a darkly sparkling tale inspired by the classic All About Eve" (Lauren Laverne Grazia)

"Palahniuk remains a cutting stylist who knows how to toss a well-aimed barb" (Daily Telegraph)

"With his love of contemporary fairy tales that are gritty and dirty rather than pretty, Palahniuk is the likeliest inheritor of Vonnegut's place in American writing" (San Francisco Chronicle)

"Chuck Palahniuk is one of modern American fiction's most interesting stylists, and he's at it again... A masterful feat" (Associated Press)

Book Description

Chuck Palahniuk tackles Hollywood, in an hilarious assault on celebrity, and the Golden Age of Hollywood, when grand dames ruled the roost.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE PLOT THICKENS! 5 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not my favourite Chuck book but I found the latter half of it far more entertaining and interesting with a thickening plot that has a twist. The story reveals its self at the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars No, none of us seem so very real 3 Oct 2013
By Ruth
Format:Paperback
This is familiar territory for Palahniuk, examining the shallowness and emptiness in modern life in various faces-celebrity in this case. Alongside this is is a good page turning bunny boiler with a twist. Narrated from the point of an ageing film's stars housekeeper cum carer cum confidante, she watches in despair as her employers life is invaded by a young admirer who seems to have another agenda. Not in my Palahniuk favourites but with some scorching insights as usual, which will no doubt continue to ensure I read his new ones as they come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read 21 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I disagree with some of the reviews as I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
It is entertaining, sinister, funny, has sharp observations and to-the-point descriptions of characters and human flaws.
Deserves a space on any bookshelf.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid Effort. 28 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback
There are certain authors that make you feel as though you should have a bingo card with you when reading their work. Chuck is most certainly one of those authors. Although in his defense he does try and switch up his writing style on a regular basis in an effort to keep things fresh with varying degrees of success, it's just a shame he couldn't try and switch up his story telling style as well.

Tell-All is by no means a great piece, but it's definitely not Palahiuk's worst work by a long shot either. Sure the constant name dropping gets annoying after the first few pages, and if you've read a couple of Chuck's books before then you know exactly where the story is going. That being said, there are some genuinely funny and sometimes insightful moments in Tell-All, enough to keep me from dismissing it entirely. Plus it's a very short read, so you won't feel as though you've wasted a huge amount of time.
