Summary
Cherry Pye is a pop "singer" who's really only interested in fame and the partying that comes with it. Moderation is not in her vocabulary (nor is most of the English language) so her handlers have hired an actress, Ann Delusia, to portray Cherry whenever the singer is "indisposed." The trouble really begins when a crazed paparazzo kidnaps Ann, thinking she is the real deal.
Critique
I've never read a book where a character has a weed whacker as a prosthesis. This is crazy, socially (and physically) skewering, funny stuff.
