Celebrity is the fastest spreading disease in postmodern society. David Hasselhof has it; Wayne Rooney's girlfriend has it; and it seems pretty much anyone can catch it from the A to Z list, presumably just by reading too many magazines. Susie Hogarth dissects the truth and falsehoods about the greatness of celebrity, where it came from and why it is funny. Key questions are addressed in a pithy, prickly book that sets Mae West up to dissect the rise of Hollywood and beyond. A hot book on a cool topic.
