- Life as a Hollywood Publicist with Farrah, The Rat Pack, & 600 More Stars Who Fired Me
- By: Jay Bernstein
- Narrated by: Arthur Morey
- Length: 12 hrs and 32 mins
Revealingly candid, this Hollywood memoir is the story of Jay Bernstein, an entertainment industry fixture who helped launch and sustain the careers of many celebrities including Farrah Fawcett and Suzanne Somers. From his childhood in Oklahoma City and his first job in a Hollywood mail room to the ownership of his own public relations firm and his work as a television producer, Bernstein’s life is chronicled in his own words.

Would you listen to Starmaker again? Why?
A few years down the road, perhaps. I generally don't repeat listen to audiobooks. But if I did, this would be one of them.
What other book might you compare Starmaker to and why?
You'll Never Eat Lunch in This Town Again...very similar, behind the scenes, warts and all story of Hollywood machinations and manipulations.
Which character – as performed by Arthur Morey – was your favorite?
The only answer I can give for this is Jay Bernstein, the author, as it's told in first-person.
Any additional comments?
The narrator is fantastic, save his frequent incorrect pronunciations of well-known pop culture names: Raquel Welch is pronounced Ra-Quell, Jaclyn Smith becomes Jocelyn Smith, Jose Eber becomes Jose Ebber. Aside from that, fantastic job.
