A real-life movie publicist's deliciously dishy novel of behind-the-scenes Hollywood madness.
Karen Jacobs has heard plenty of stories about Glorious Pictures and Phil and Tony Waxman, the notorious twin brothers who co-founded the film studio and now run it with four iron fists. For the last twenty years, their mix of edgy films and take-no-prisoners deal making had earned the company hundreds of awards, billions of dollars, and a singular reputation as an incredibly tough place to work. But when she is off e red a job there, Karen doesnt hesitate, knowing that if any place proved that the sky was the limit, Glorious was it. She finds herself with an all-access pass to the tantrums, whims, follies, neuroses, and unimaginable egos of the celebrities who star in Glorious films, which come as no surprise. It's the absolute insanity inside the company that knocks her for a loop. Armed with tenacity, ambition and wit, Karen learns that what it takes to make it in the civilized world may have no bearing in the Glorious one. Extremely competitive and cutthroat, the Glorious executives continuously search for ways to outdo, outscheme, and outmaneuver each other in their attempts to impress the Waxmans.
In the best-selling tradition of The Devil Wears Prada, real-life movie publicist Rachel Pine's razor-sharp satire, The Twins of TriBeCa perfectly captures the behind-the-scenes machinations of the film industry in all its glory. Savvy readers may even recognize a boldfaced name or two amidst the hilarious exploits of this high-spirited junior publicist.

Rachel Pine is a former publicist for Miramax Films. She is currently director of marketing for Doubledown Media, an entertainment marketing firm. She lives in New York City. This is her first book.From AudioFile:
Rachel Pine, former second assistant for a notorious New York film company, has written a fictional exposé of her experiences at the company, detailing all of the bad behavior and personality quirks in minute detail. While the story is entertaining, and it's easy to decipher which celebrities Pine is "outing," the characters are shallow at their best, despicable at their worst, leaving narrator Ana Gasteyer with the difficult task of engaging readers. Gasteyer gives a distinct voice to each character, using tone and inflection to bring life and depth to an otherwise gray cast. The result is an entertaining, though superficial and predictable, insider's look at a glamorous and narcissistic industry.
