"A Star is Bored is an absolute knockout. Riotously funny and wickedly tender."
— Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones and the Six

"Wildly funny and irreverent… Lane’s writing lifts the novel far above its gossamer Hollywood setting, suffusing [the novel] with a complex sensitivity."
The New York Times Book Review

A hilariously heartfelt novel influenced in part by the author’s time assisting Carrie Fisher.

She needs an assistant.
He needs a hero.

Charlie Besson is tense and sweating as he prepares for a wild job interview. His car is idling, like his life, outside the Hollywood mansion of Kathi Kannon, star of stage and screen and People magazine’s Worst Dressed list. She's an actress in need of assistance, and he's adrift and in need of a lifeline.

Kathi is an icon, bestselling author, and award-winning movie star, most known for her role as Priestess Talara in a blockbuster sci-fi film. She’s also known in another role: Outrageous Hollywood royalty. Admittedly so. Famously so. Chaotically so, as Charlie quickly discovers.

Charlie gets the job, and his three-year odyssey is filled with late-night shopping sprees, last-minute trips to see the aurora borealis, and an initiation to that most sacred of Hollywood tribes: the personal assistant. But Kathi becomes much more than a boss, and as their friendship grows Charlie must make a choice. Will he always be on the sidelines of life, assisting the great forces that be, or can he step into his own life's leading role?

Laugh-out-loud funny, and searingly poignant, Byron Lane's A Star is Bored is a novel that, like the star at its center, is enchanting and joyous, heartbreaking and hopeful.

YOUNG AND DUMB

YEAR OF YEARS


The 1970’s hit Tommy like a tidal wave. So Tommy did what he had to do – he learned to swim.

It’s 1973, and the post-Woodstock generation, and the new world of rock ‘n roll, marijuana, birth control, ripped jeans, fake ID’s, and anti-authority hit like a tidal wave on the scene. That’s the uproarious comic world young Tommy Stafford was thrown into, and he had to sink or swim. So he swims, and it takes him on the hilarious ride of a lifetime, as he navigates the shoals at boarding school in a riotous story of finding acceptance in his new world.

Tommy didn’t ask for this world, but if it was to come, he would be ready for it and make the most of it. The hysterical hijinks of Tommy and his band of friends runs afoul of the school and forces Tommy to fight for his new life, a life he didn’t even know he wanted a few months ago – against the forces of tradition his new life has left behind.

Follow Tommy Stafford in this hysterically funny account of his year of years and remember your year of years in a way that brings it all back and makes you smile as you reminisce. There are boarding school stories, such as A Separate Piece, and then there are boarding school stories, and this is one of the best. It’s the wild 1970s, and the characters in this novel participate in the kind of hijinks that will make you fondly remember your years of years.

It’s a coming of age novel, to be sure, but it’s also a comedy novel that will make you think of friendship, high school, and your coming of age. As a hysterically funny humor novel, you will witness the kind of hijinks that reminds you of Animal House while also being the kind of comedy book that brings back those wild times in vivid detail. So if you like hijinks, good comedy novels, coming of age fiction, and the wild 1970s, you will enjoy the exploits of Tommy Stafford and his band of merry pranksters.
