"No journalism about the entertainment business gives me more pleasure than Tad Friend’s. He is unvaryingly smart, fun, funny and fearless, and a terrific reporter to boot."
–Kurt Andersen, author of Turn of the Century
"Tad Friend is the finest writer who has never done stand-up comedy working today. Reading these thoughtful, surprising essays is pure pleasure."
–Steve Martin, author of Shopgirl and Pure Drivel
