“There is little more alluring than the promise of secrets, and Do Tell is full of them–glamorous, tawdry, and human. A rich portrait of the lives of early Hollywood’s beautiful puppets and those holding their strings.” –Emma Straub, New York Times bestselling author of This Time Tomorrow
Does your reading group like to spill the tea? We have the book for you! Do Tell, the debut novel by Lindsay Lynch, takes readers behind the scenes of Hollywood’s Golden Age, where studios dictated everything from what roles actors played to who they dated, crimes were covered up, secrets were currency, image was everything, and gossip columnists had the power to make or break not only careers, but lives. Enter Edie O’Dare. Her acting contract is almost up and will not be renewed. She’s trying to figure out what’s next when an up-and-coming starlet hands her a note alleging an assault from an A-list actor, and Edie decides to turn her moonlighting gig as a gossip columnist into a fulltime career. It’s the trial of the century, and what Edie chooses to write may carry more weight than any evidence presented.
