About the Author

Pamela Anderson is one of the most recognizable women in the world and the mother of two. She lives in a small town on the California coast. "Ghostwriter" Eric Shaw Quinn lives and works in Los Angeles. She's from Ladysmith, British Columbia, he's from Natchitoches, Louisiana -- just two small-town kids trying to make it in the big city. They are very proud of Star, their first work together; but a little disappointed that they could spend this much time together and not be linked romantically in the tabloids.

Reviews

In Anderson's lighter-than-air debut, our titular heroine bears more than a passing resemblance to the author herself. Aspiring cosmetologist Esther Wood Leigh, nicknamed "Star" as a kid for her irresistible charm, is impossibly na?ve, untenably good-hearted and utterly pneumatic when a marketing exec from Zax beer discovers her, um, magnetism at a football game. In remarkably Anderson-like fashion, Star goes on to grace the cover of a Playboy-like magazine, land a role in a Baywatch-like television series and get entangled with a string of Tommy Lee- and Kid Rock-like rock stars. Naturally, her path to A-list celebrity is punctuated by a steady stream of lighthearted, cringe-inducing sexual adventures with actors ("not the most imaginative lover, but like a favorite dildo, he was always ready to go"), moguls ("the strained notes of the aria trailed up and concluded in concert with their own activity"), mechanics ("`So which of these has the most comfortable backseat?' she asked, ad-libbing wildly") and the occasional gang of naked strangers ("Star was still having sex, but she no longer had any idea with who"). Anderson's range is predictably limited, and she abandons quite a few unrealized plot threads along the way. This thinly veiled novelization of her own life doesn't pretend to be anything but trashy and cheesy, which gives it an amiable charm. (Aug.) Forecast: Anderson is a media magnet, of course, and this book should reach previously untapped readerships. Those who can't get enough will be happy to learn that she's writing a second novel, also a roman ? clef. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
