Soaked, nay, marinated in the world of vintage Hollywood, Tell-All is a Sunset Boulevard-inflected homage to Old Hollywood and a hilarious assault on celebrity.
Hazie Coogan has for decades tended to the outsized needs of Katherine “Miss Kathie” Kenton, a larger-than-life star who has survived multiple marriages, career comebacks, cosmetic surgeries, and emotional dramas. But danger lurks with the arrival of a gentleman caller named Webster Carlton Westward III, who worms his way into Miss Kathie’s heart and boudoir.
Hazie discovers that this bounder has already written his celebrity tell-all memoir, which foretells Miss Kathie’s death in a forthcoming Lillian Hellman-penned musical extravaganza. As the body count mounts, Hazie must execute a plan to save Katherine Kenton for her fans—and for posterity.

“Few contemporary writers mix the outrageous and the hilarious with greater zest…Chuck Palahniuk’s splenetic, anarchic glee makes him a worthy heir to Ken Kesey.” (Newsday)
“…Palahniuk punctures our collective psyches with sharp darts of satire, subversion, and surprise.” (Booklist)
