Expand your enjoyment of literature with TELL-ALL by Chuck Palahniuk (unabridged). This interactive mash-up experience contains a multitude of features and content to help take you beyond the words, by providing a 5-star professional reading, background extras, games, and more. NOTE: This app is fully accessible, and includes support for VoiceOver. 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 named 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. Self-contained, this app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. This app was built especially for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, meaning it fits your device perfectly. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. This was professionally recorded at the Blackstone Audio studios by professional narrator Hillary Huber. • EXPERIENCE. About 5.6 hours of narration.

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy lurid tales of murder and scandal in the Golden Age of Hollywood. ___________________ “Few contemporary writers mix the outrageous and the hilarious with greater zest…Chuck Palahniuk’s splenetic, anarchic glee makes him a worthy heir to Ken Kesey.” (Newsday) “…Palahniuk punctures our collective psyches with sharp darts of satire, subversion, and surprise.” (Booklist)
