'When I was young I was convinced celebrities could save me,' Julie Klam admits in The Stars in Our Eyes, her funny and personal exploration of fame and celebrity. Klam examines the phemen of celebrity. She delves deep into what makes someone a celebrity, explains why we care about celebrities more than ever, and uncovers the bargains they make with the public and the burdens they bear to sustain this status. The result is an engaging, astute, and eye-opening look into celebrity that uncovers the truths about fame as it explains why it's such an important part of life today.
Julie Klam is the New York Times-bestselling author of You Had Me at Woof, Love at First Bark, Friendkeeping, and Please Excuse My Daughter. Her writing has appeared in a variety of publications, including O: The Oprah Magazine, Rolling Stone, and The New York Times Magazine. She lives in New York City.
