Fork on the Left, Knife in the Back is a rollicking, hilarious, and cutting view of our pop culture and how it got that way. With an introduction by Musto explaining how he became addicted to gossip, it takes us--in different sections--through his zingiest Village Voice columns about the celebrities he's encountered who most needed help; the ones who dazzled; the nightclubs that dizzied; and the items that titillated.
A first-person observer of many scenes, Musto immerses himself into his pieces, gaining extraordinary access and also making remarkable admissions about his own experiences and foibles. And he's added some original essays about blogging, the celebrity closet, new media, and the allure of blind items. Pick up this "Fork" and turn to any page at random and you've got a mouthful.
