What if Chekhov’s witty, insightful short stories of human society were re-written with celebrities in them? Imagine a twitchy Conan O’Brien frantically agonizing because he sneezed on Larry King or a Michael Douglas scared of everything, even his relationship with his lovely young wife Catherine Zeta-Jones or a bitter Artie Lange railing against the dead Andy Kaufman for inadvertently shuttling him into a wretched life of comedy. Amusing and wry, these collections show that celebrities are just like everybody else, only more so.
