Bold Face Names
Toronto: HarperCollins Canada, 2009.

Part celebrity piñata, part scorching social satire, Boldface Names is a fast-paced romp through the land of the rich, the famous, and the wicked. In the eye of the party storm is Ravi, a vertically challenged gossip columnist (and self-confessed “tribe-traveller”), who snoops and schmoozes and amasses gift bags. But all hell breaks loose in the glittersphere when a mysterious D-list starlet is parachuted into Ravi’s life for safekeeping, setting off a high-stakes game of secrets and lies. Adding to the drama? The skeleton in Ravi’s own closet!
