Imagine having famous actors for parents. And grandparents. Imagine that while they bask in the limelight, you feel consigned to the role of second spear-carrier in the tired repertory production of your own life. Imagine being lied-to, tricked and manipulated by the actors in your family until you reach your wit's end. You too might develop a grudge against 'the profession'. Set in Beverly Hills, the world capital of narcissism, Me Me Me concerns itself with three generations of an Anglo-American acting family. Ralph Tait returns to LA after an absence of eight years to complete his grandfather's long-overdue memoirs. When Donald Tait goes missing shortly after his seventy-sixth birthday, it begins to look as if his autobiography may hold the key to some darker family secrets and, as Ralph uncovers some painful truths about his family and himself, the novel accelerates towards its inevitable conclusion. A ferocious black comedy that explores the effects of raging egomania in an acting family, Me Me Me is the best novel to date from the acclaimed author of The Big Kiss.Vom Verlag:
