Boy Culture blogger Matthew Rettenmund has worn a lot of hats over the years – he’s worked in book publishing, gay porn magazine publishing, teen celebrity magazine publishing, and (of course) blogging. But he’s probably most famous for being an unabashed star fucker – HIS WORDS! NOT MINE! As “the ultimate pop-culture enthusiast,” he has been obsessed with celebrities ever since he was a little gayby, and his new book Starf*cker is a shameless celebration of his idol worship. Filled with juicy behind-the scenes stories about everyone from Zac Efron to Carol Channing, Rettenmund expertly details and deconstructs his-and our-passion for celebrity.
Says Lethe Press:
Matthew Rettenmund’s hilarious memoir, celebrating the author’s journey through celebrity obsession in vivid, honest, humorously reflective prose in the tradition of David Sedaris. Starf*cker is not only Matthew’s tale of a lifetime of celebrity worship; it’s the story of our culture’s deranged predilection for all things famous. More than just a memoir, Starf*cker is an anthem of a generation, a group disdainful of reality stars but likely to want a photo op with them, reverent of has-beens, driven to distraction by what they watched on TV growing up, and always, always measuring everything in pop culture against Madonna.
