Fiction. Poetry. Women's Studies. Art. Kate Durbin's E! ENTERTAINMENT sparkles with the static of TV personalities, the privileged dramas of MTV's The Hills and Bravo's Real Housewives, the public tragedies of Amanda Knox and Anna Nicole Smith. Durbin traces the migratory patterns of the flightiest members of our televised demimonde, from the vacant bedrooms of the Playboy Mansion to the modern gothic set of Kim Kardashian's fairytale wedding, rendering a fabulous, fallen world in a language of diamond-studded lavishness.
"Smart and weirdly engaging."—Publisher's Weekly
"Powerful and sinister."—The Rumpus
