Icon free pdf Celebrity gives us the opportunity to see some small part of ourselves writ large. Some public figures factor more prominently in our thoughts than others, some perhaps too much. We become fascinated, inspired, even repelled. In these daring essays, some of the most provocative writers of our time offer a private view on a public figure, and in doing so, reveal pieces of themselves. These intimate portraits show how the boundary between memoir and biography often disappears.
