Sasha King, a down to earth young writer who finds herself working inside a
world that both repels and fascinates her: Project Icon, the once-mighty
television talent show that’s taken a hit in the ratings. In an attempt to get
back on top, the show has hired two new celebrity judges,
entrepreneur-actress-singer Bibi Vasquez and rock legend Joey Lovecraft, a
priapic wild man who doesn’t even own a television (it goes against the
teachings of his guru, Tibetan high lama Yutog Gonpo).
addition to the demands of the new judges, Sasha has the task of handling
frighteningly robotic host Wayne Shoreline (who may or may not eat puppies as
part of his pre-show prep), young would-be idols (including the foul-mouthed
Mia Pelosi and the chaps-wearing Jimmy Nuggett), muckraking gossip columnists,
and the powerful executive of a competing reality television talent show. The
combination of characters will leave readers swimming in a cocktail of pure
Night, we get a peek at the deliciously outrageous machinations, the ego
clashes, meltdowns, and cover-ups, that take place behind the scenes of the
talent shows we’ve become addicted to. The details of their inner workings are
so accurate the book had to be written anonymously.
