Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vicious, in a good way. Salon.com columnist and feature writer Cintra Wilson is famous for her clever and acidic prose. If the cult of celebrity makes you sick to your stomach, you will love this book. A bit po-mo, with different typefaces and interjections throughout, but not irritatingly so.
