About this title:

Synopsis:Dead Stars is the London Fields of Los Angeles, the Ulysses of TMZ culture—an immensely literate, fearsomely interior novel about people who are neither.” —Tom Bissell, GQ

At age thirteen, Telma is famous as the world’s youngest breast cancer survivor until threatened with obscurity by a four-year-old who’s just undergone a mastectomy.... Reeyonna believes that auditioning for pregnant teenage porn will help fulfill her dream of befriending Kanye West.... Jackie, a photographer once celebrated for arty nudes of her young daughter, is working at a Sears Family Portrait boutique.... And Oscar-winning Michael Douglas searches for meaning while his wife, Catherine, guest-stars on Glee.

Moving forward with the inexorable force of a tsunami, Dead Stars is Bruce Wagner’s most lavish and remarkable translation yet of the national zeitgeist: post-privacy porn culture, a Kardashianworld of rapid-cycling, disposable narrative where reality-show triumph is the new American narcotic.

About the Author: Bruce Wagner is a screenwriter and the author of several books, including I'm Losing You, Memorial, The Chrysanthemum Palace, and Still Holding. He lives in Los Angeles.

Book Description SONATINE, 2014. soft. Book Condition: NEUF. Vous vous demandez quelle est l'influence d'Internet, de la pornographie et de la culture people sur les adolescents ? Disons qu'ils y gagnent en vivacité ce qu'ils y perdent en morale. Et que leur ambition peut désormais prendre des formes quelque peu baroques. Prenez Thelma, 13 ans, la plus jeune survivante au monde d'un cancer du sein, qui, après des années de gloire victimaire, doit maintenant penser à sa reconversion, son titre étant menacé par une toute jeune Canadienne. Son rêve ? Jouer dans Glee. Pour cela, quoi de plus simple que d'appeler à l'aide un autre rescapé célèbre du cancer, Michael Douglas ?Passons à Reeyonna, 16 ans. Passionnée par les adolescents les plus célèbres d'Hollywood, Reeyonna rêve de faire un jour la une des magazines, comme son idole Rihanna. Alors qu'elle met tout en oeuvre pour y arriver, son petit ami, Rikki, passe quant à lui ses journées à regarder du porno sur Internet pendant que son frère, Jerzy, traque les photos de stars malades pour un site spécialisé. Autant de jeunes addicts à la célébrité, à l'argent, au spectacle, prêts à tout pour faire parler d'eux, quitte à avoir recours aux solutions les plus extrêmes. Leur parcours dans l'usine à rêve promet d'être explosif.Avec ce roman choral, qui évoque les meilleures séries américaines, d'Entourage à Californication, Bruce Wagner en contemporain absolu fait d'Hollywood la métaphore d'un monde obsédé par la notoriété et le voyeurisme. Son style remarquable emporte tel un tsunami des personnages réels ou imaginaires en plein naufrage spirituel. C'est en effet un véritable Enfer de Dante revu et corrigé qu'il nous propose ici, à cette différence près que les tourments des damnés n'avaient, à l'époque, rien d'aussi jubilatoire. - Nombre de page(s) : 800 - Poids : 894g - Langue : ANGLAIS (ETATS-UNIS) - Genre : Littérature Anglo-Saxonne.
