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, 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. Tell-All is funny, subversive, and fascinatingly clever. It’s wild, it’s wicked, it’s bold-faced—it’s vintage Chuck.

A New York Times bestseller

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, 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.

Tell-All is funny, subversive, and fascinatingly clever. It’s wild, it’s wicked, it’s bold-faced—it’s vintage Chuck.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“So funny...There are a lot of laughs to be had, notably from some outlandish Broadway productions of the playwright Lillian Hellman, and the excruciating extracts we read of Westward’s juicy and self-aggrandizing memoir, gloriously entitled Love Slave.” Independent (London) 
“Chuck Palahniuk is one of modern American fiction’s most interesting stylists, and he’s at it again...A masterful feat.” Associated Press
“Palahniuk still has considerable linguistic firepower and satirical humor.” Library Journal
“At his best, Palahniuk punctures our collective psyches with sharp darts of satire, subversion, and surprise…Palahniuk stages some stunning scenes and pens some bawdily hilarious lines…some of the set pieces resemble the scathing satire of a young William S. Burroughs.” Booklist
“As the cult master of high-concept fictional subversion, the prolific Palahniuk has his typical fun here…with the author having great sport with the wordplay that once filled the columns of Walter Winchell, Hedda Hopper and the like.” Kirkus Reviews
“Palahniuk channels old Hollywood in this homage to Billy Wilder’s classic film Sunset Boulevard…Hilary Huber’s pitch and pronunciation are inspired by the great actresses of the 1930s and ’40s. Her arch voice recalls the smoky tones of cigarette tapping screen stars, and her raspy narration is chilling.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
“Hillary Huber, a relative newbie in the audiobook narrating industry, does a superb job of voicing the Thelma Ritter–esque housekeeper and lending a vintage Hollywood feel to this audio production.” Library Journal (audio review)
