Tell-All by Chuck Palahniuk
Palahniuk is one of my favorite authors, I get a tiny boner when he releases a new book, which is once a year. So when I started Tell-All I got worried that he finally wrote a book I wasn’t going to love or even like, the first few chapters had me working too hard to figure shit out, but then it started to flow and I couldn’t put the book down.
The best part about this book is that even though I have finished reading it, I am not done with it. The book is written from the POV of Hazie Coogan the caretaker of an old Hollywood Actress. So there is name dropping all through-out the book, LOTS of name dropping, to a point where I didn’t understand why he would just make up all these names of people we will not get to know. But then my stupid brain realized these were the names of actual Old Hollywood actors, directors, fashion designers etc from the 40s & 50’s and I really started to appreciate his research and now I am looking some of these names up and learning a little, like everyone was an alcoholic with several failed marriages and a short life ending in a suspicious fire.
So anyway, I still have a boner.
