Hollywood, Interrupted Insanity Chic in Babylon -- The Case Against Celebrity

by Andrew Breitbart, Mark Ebner

Hollywood, Interrupted Insanity Chic in Babylon -- The Case Against Celebrity Synopsis

Hollywood, Interrupted is a sometimes frightening, occasionally sad, and frequently hysterical odyssey into the darkest realms of showbiz pathology, the endless stream of meltdowns and flameouts, and the inexplicable behavior on the part of show business personalities. Charting celebrities from rehab to retox, to jails, cults, institutions, near-death experiences and the Democratic Party, Hollywood, Interrupted takes readers on a surreal field trip into the amoral belly of the entertainment industry. Each chapter - covering topics including warped Hollywood child-rearing, bad medicine, hypocritical political maneuvering and the complicit media - delivers a meticulously researched, interview-infused, attitude heavy dispatch which analyzes and deconstructs the myths created by the celebrities themselves. Celebrities somehow believe that it's their god-given right to inflict their pathology on the rest of us. Hollywood, Interrupted illustrates how these dysfunctional dilettantes are mad as hell... And we're not going to take it any more.
