Product description

Review

" Schoeneman (of "New York" magazine) writes a fast-paced, seductive first novel that follows three gossip columnists immersed in the chaos of Manhattan celebrity life. This is an unforgiving portrait of fame from the underlings' point of view with Schoeneman the Bret Easton Ellis of chick lit." -- "Publishers Weekly"
" Money, power, and fame are my favorite themes. Schoeneman gives the reader a front-row seat to the world of celebrity that so fascinates our society. It's funny. It's sexy. It's mean. I couldn't put it down." -- Dominick Dunne
" An entertaining read about gossip writers, creators, and makers, this novel by Deborah Schoeneman unzips the subject from behind the scenes-- really captures the energy, hustle, and ballyhoo." -- Tama Janowitz, author of "Slaves of New York"
" "4% Famous," by Deborah Schoeneman (who's worked at "The New York Observer" and "New York"), [will] whirl readers through the newsrooms, nightclubs, openings, and red carpets that fuel and fill the gossip pages. (Hello, summer beach bags.)" -- Daily Candy
" 4% Famous is like 'the OED of gossip, a good crib sheet for the next time someone does something scandalous, either as subject or reporter,"'" "-- "New York "Magazine"
" "Lowdown A fun, insidery, and decidedly unliterary glimpse into New York media culture,"" "-- "Entertainment Weekly
"" A page turner." "
