Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Some girls seek fame, others have it thrust upon them. . .
Clothing designer Kyra Felis has never been one to worship celebrities--she'd rather read a good book or make a blouse out of a tablecloth. She marries Hollywood man-of-the-moment Declan McKenna for love, with no inkling of how his notoriety will send her life spinning out of control.
But once Kyra reluctantly becomes a celebrity by association there's no turning back. And even though she has all the trappings of success, she can't do the things that make her happy--throw a party; drink a glass of wine (or four) at a quiet café; confide in her friends. When Declan's fame literally endangers Kyra's life, she starts to wonder, can she survive more than a year of living famously?

Review:

"Caldwell's snazzy, gripping third novel gives readers an exciting taste of life in the fast lane, exposing the truth behind the fairy tale." Kristine Huntley, Booklist

Review:

"Sharply observed, fresh, and compelling, The Year of Living Famously is a captivating look into the cult of celebrity." Leslie Stella, author of The Easy Hour

Synopsis:

The Year of Living Famously explores our society's obsession with celebrity and one woman's place on the edge of unwanted fame.
