Bold Face Names
Part celebrity piñata, part scorching social satire, Boldface Names is a romp through the land of the rich, the famous and the wicked. In the eye of the party storm is Ravi, a vertically challenged gossip columnist (and self-confessed “tribe-traveller”), who snoops and schmoozes and amasses gift bags. But all hell breaks loose on the glittersphere when a mysterious D-list starlet is parachuted into Ravi’s life for safekeeping, setting off a high-stakes game of secrets and lies. Adding to the drama?
The skeleton in Ravi’s own closet!
Spanning from the beaches of Anguilla to the towers of Dubai, from L.A. to London to the social mines of Toronto, Boldface Names stops in at all the hottest tickets: the fashion shows, book shindigs, race-car parties and champagne launches. Adorning the hi-jinks are Govani’s laser-sharp observations on human behaviour, social milieus and the machinery of gossip. The wisecracks fly at a Coward-esque pace and the action hums. But be forewarned: no one is safe in Boldface Names.
