Fork on the Left, Knife in the Back is a rollicking, hilarious, and cutting view of our pop culture and how it got that way. With an introduction by Musto explaining how he became addicted to gossip, it takes us--in different sections--through his zingiest Village Voice columns about the celebrities he's encountered who most needed help; the ones who dazzled; the nightclubs that dizzied; and the items that titillated.
A first-person observer of many scenes, Musto immerses himself into his pieces, gaining extraordinary access and also making remarkable admissions about his own experiences and foibles. And he's added some original essays about blogging, the celebrity closet, new media, and the allure of blind items. Pick up this "Fork" and turn to any page at random and you've got a mouthful.

MICHAEL MUSTO writes the popular entertainment column "La Dolce Musto" in the Village Voice and the breathlessly opinionated blog La Daily Musto on villagevoice.com. He's a regular commentator all over TV, talking about pop cultural developments with sardonic glee. The New York Times calls him “the city’s most punny, raunchy, and self referential gossip columnist." Said Publishers Weekly, his last book was "full of adulation, cattiness, and sexual innuendo...Musto’s witty ridicule is pithy.” This is Musto's fourth book.
