Soaked. nay. marinated in the world of vintage Hollywood. Tell-All is a Sunset Boulevard-inflected homage to Old Hollywood and a hilarious assault on celebrity. Hazie Coogan has for decades tended to the outsized needs of Katherine „Miss Kathie” Kenton. a larger-than-life star who has survived multiple marriages. career comebacks. cosmetic surgeries. and emotional dramas. But danger lurks with the arrival of a gentleman caller. Webster Carlton Westward III. who worms his way into Miss Kathie’s heart and boudoir. Hazie discovers that this bounder has already written his celebrity tell-all memoir. which foretells Miss Kathie’s death in a forthcoming Lillian Hellman-penned musical extravaganza. As the body count mounts. Hazie must execute a plan to save Katherine Kenton for her fans-and for posterity. Tell-All is funny. subversive. and fascinatingly clever. It’s wild. it’s wicked. it’s bold-faced-it’s vintage Chuck.

Exploring political and individual corruption. it expresses skepticism about the ability of newly decolonized nations to forge independent identities. Salim. a Muslim Indian merchant. opens a store in a sleepy small town at a bend in the river. whose inhabitants include a Belgian priest. a witch. and a white intellectual named Raymond. The president of the new country is a demagogue called the Big Man who hires Raymond as his speechwriter. Salim loses control of his store to the commercially inexperienced Citizen Theotime. who hires Salim to manage it. Gradually. the town’s veneer of civilization begins to crumble.
