As a celebrated photographer sorts through her photo archive in preparation of retrospective in her honor, we share in her mental memoir of her history and experiences: of the rich & famous with their public faces & dark secrets; of artistry & passion in conflict with ambition & lust; and finally the scandalous desire that seems to have driven her life. Theroux satirizes our obsession with celebrity with both wit & style.

A Theroux novel, not one of his travel books.
