From one of America’s most beloved television actresses: A
sharply observed, comedic novel about the flipside of
fame—and a fresh take on Hollywood in all its outrageous,
On the outside, Kate Keyes-Morgan seems to have it all: a
starring role on the hit television series Generations, a
handsome husband who is also her manager, a stick-thin
figure, and a career that, after a Kirstie Alley-style
slide, is finally back on track. At the age of thirty, Kate
knows what it’s like to have the tabloids turn on you, and
she never wants it to happen again. Thank goodness her
husband, Hamilton, is there to manage her every move—even if
the strict dieting and morning weigh-ins are becoming more
than she can manage.
But when Hamilton leaves her for another actress on
Generations, the ruthless diva Sapphire Rose, Kate suddenly
finds herself in charge of her own life. Now she must decide
whether she’s ready to stop playing by the Hollywood
rulebook and discover who she really is. With the help of
her wise-cracking friend and tough-love hairstylist, Paige,
and Michael, a high-powered film agent who secretly dreams
of becoming a novelist, Kate begins to question her role in
an industry that venerates appearance, money, and fame above
all else, and that applies ceaseless pressure on women to
always be thinner, younger, and more beautiful, at any cost.
From high fashion to on-set antics to the real-life whispers
about celebrities that even the tabloids never tell,
Courtney Thorne-Smith depicts the entertainment world as
only an insider can. Yet beneath the glamorous facade lies a
natural-born writer with a gift for comic timing and shaping
memorable characters. If you’ve ever wanted to experience
life in the spotlight or wondered what goes on behind
dressing room doors, Outside In is your invitation into the
glittering world of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
