Inhaltsangabe: "The book achieves a fresh spin thanks to incisive updates and story-behind-the-story anecdotes, all peppered with the author's pull-no-punches observations."-People
Vanity Fair's Maureen Orth covers lives led in public, on camera, at the very top-from Margaret Thatcher to Tina Turner, from the political theater of the Clinton White House to the strange kingdom of Princess Diana's almost father-in-law. Now this National Magazine Award-winning reporter pulls back the curtain to reveal those who flourish (or sometimes flame out) at these heady altitudes, unraveling their complex lives and exploring the chemistry, the very DNA, of celebrity today.
The Importance of Being Famous is a portrait of an era where the media grew larger, the distinction between fame and infamy grew smaller, and celebrity ruled all. Orth delivers a revealing, sophisticated look at the big room of modern celebrity and the star-making machinery of the "celebrity-industrial complex."
