Chuck Palahniuk’s “Tell-All”

The AV Club has the first two chapters of Chuck Palahniuk’s new novel Tell-All

Here’s the gist, from Publisher’s Weekly: “Palahniuk’s rude sendup of name-dropping and the culture of celebrity worship revolves around the fate of Katherine Kenton, a much-married star of stage, screen, and television, living in obscurity and searching for a comeback vehicle. Her story is told by Mazie Coogan—her Thelma Ritterish, straight-shooting confidant and protector—whose warning system sounds when Miss Kathie meets Webster Carlton Westward III, who quickly seduces his way into her Manhattan townhouse. It’s soon revealed he’s working on a memoir about his affair with Miss Kathie, the last chapter of which ends with her anticipated death, the details of which keep changing.”
