A smart and wacky novel about hype and stardom. This media-savvy comic novel is a hilarious look at manufactured celebrity and stardom in our celebrity and stardom-centric culture. A struggling writer sells his soul to the devil show biz. He gives himself over to his friend, a big-time music-business mogul, a modern-day Barnum, who packages him as a celebrity. Through spin doctors and media specialists, the writer becomes a phenomenon, a concert star, and a best-selling author. He gets everything he wants and some things he doesn't. The Big Hype is a delightful fruitcake of a novel that is also serious food for thought.
