Praise for Julie Klam
Praise for The Stars In Our Eyes: The Famous, The Infamous, And Why We Care Way Too Much About Them
“Julie Klam examines the reasons for our preoccupation with the world of fame and the celebration of it. . . . I loved this book, and kept sneaking away to read it.”— —Carly Simon, New York Times–bestselling author of Boys in the Trees: A Memoir
“I really love Julie Klam’s smart and neurotic mind. In this book, she makes our celebrity obsession important and resonant.”— –Jon Ronson, author of the New York Times–bestselling The Psychopath Test
Julie Klam brings out a parade of the ‘famous’ and makes us look at the phenomenon of how and why these people sometimes occupy such a fixed and outsized place inside our brains. The Stars in Our Eyes is insightful, funny, and a total pleasure.”— —Meg Wolitzer, bestselling author of The Interestings
“[Klam’s] sharp humor really shines when she reflects on her awkward youth, especially her childhood in the moneyed enclave of Bedford, N.Y. The Stars in Our Eyes is a fast, fun look at celebrity culture that reads like a bubbly conversation at an Oscars viewing party, where we gossip with glee and then wonder why we know so much about these strangers’ lives.”— —Washington Post
