IS FAME REALLY WORTH ALL THE TROUBLE?

Aspiring cartoonist Catherine "Cat" Gold earns her living as a celebrity assistant in uptown Manhattan, while navigating the cramped downtown spaces of life, love, and alternative art. Her boss is Rochelle "Rocky" Love, a elebrated 1970s feminist and has-been '80s radio andtelevision star who is convinced she can forge a '90s comeback with anautobiography.

But the ghostwriter hired to glorify her lifeinstead reveals a battleground of treachery and hypocrisy, littered with lies and sex that cross all the boundaries. When Cat herselfexperiences Rocky's duplicity and learns that the icon is a fraud, sheis fueled by a sense of disappointment and conspires with theghostwriter to reveal the unspeakable truth about their narcissisticboss.
