Aspiring cartoonist Catherine "Cat" Gold earns her living as a celebrity assistant in uptown Manhattan, while navigating the cramped downtown spaces of life, love, and alternative art. Her boss is Rochelle "Rocky" Love, a celebrated '70s feminist and has-been '80s radio and television star who is convinced she can forge a 1990s comeback with an autobiography. But the ghostwriter hired to glorify her life instead reveals a battleground of treachery and hypocrisy, littered with lies and sex that cross all the boundaries. When Cat herself experiences Rocky's duplicity and learns that the icon is a fraud, she is fueled by a sense of disappointment and conspires with the ghostwriter to reveal the unspeakable truth about their narcissistic boss. In the midst of her day job, Cat works at creating cartoon strips with modern female heroines searching for love and stability in a world mired with social apathy and sexual promiscuity. Finding a measure of success with her work, Cat is surprised to discover that she's pregnant and must now make some hard choices. In the process, Cat begins to realize that she might not be so very different from Rocky after all . Praise for Katia Spiegelman's novels: "Wonderfully funny and terribly true."-Fay Weldon ". urban, hip, sad, funny, a tipsy walk on the wild side.a wise and honest depiction of young Americans on the way up."-Malcolm Bosse ". deliciously amusing . multi-barbed . laugh-aloud funny. Spiegelman humanizes her self-possessed characters even as she dispassionately observes [them]. Subversively funny and fresh."-Publisher's Weekly
