On the surface, show business is a beautiful world, filled with beautiful people. One of these people is Mike Brown, press agent extraordinaire. Charming, talented, and utterly unscrupulous, Mike leads a wild and hectic life. Whether he’s in Times Square, pulling a publicity stunt with scantily-clad women, or hustling his way across the city, picking up clients and going to meetings, Mike is always on go — and always on the job.
Larry Walters, Mike’s ruthless genius of a boss, knows he can count on Mike to seal the deal, no matter what it takes. Sometimes, that just means handling difficult clients. Other times, it means dealing with sex-crazed directors, drug dealers, social climbers, aspiring actresses, socialites, neurotic celebrities...but no matter what comes his way, Mike wouldn’t change a thing. After all, there’s no business like show business!
Hype! is an intense, exciting novel — a lurid glimpse behind the curtain, beneath the glitz and glam, into the sordid underbelly of the entertainment industry. From cult favorite Len Levinson (called a “trash genius” in the pages of Paperback Fanatic magazine), this new edition features an all-new afterword from the author!
