    From James Meek, the prize-winning author of the international best seller The People’s Act of Love, comes a rich and intricate novel about everything that matters to us now: children, celebrity, secrets and shame, the quest for youth, loyalty and betrayal, falls from grace, acts of terror, and the wonderful, terrible inescapability of family.Ritchie Shepherd, an aging pop star and a producer of a reality show for teen talent, is starting to trip over his own lies.

    Story

    I always felt removed and distant from the story and characters. Regarding the characters, there were so many coming and going with intwined relations that if my concentration missed a little bit of the story, I was lost.

    This was a plot heavy book, with such distasteful characters that I never connected.

    Four hours into the book I was still wondering when it was going to get started. Sadly, I was unable to finish. This is not like a Jennifer Egan novel, who often has characters that can be tough to connect with, but is still beautifully written. It is just tough to connect with...
