The Rise and Fall of Rocky Love
by Katia Lief
Aspiring cartoonist Catherine “Cat” Gold earns her living as a celebrity assistant in uptown Manhattan, while navigating the cramped downtown spaces of life, love, and alternative art. Her boss is Rochelle “Rocky” Love, a celebrated 1970s feminist and has-been ’80s radio and television star who is convinced she can forge a ’90s comeback with an autobiography.
But the ghostwriter hired to glorify her life instead reveals a battleground of treachery and hypocrisy, littered with lies and sex that cross all the boundaries.
When Cat herself experiences Rocky’s duplicity and learns that the icon is a fraud, she is fueled by a sense of disappointment and conspires with the ghostwriter to reveal the unspeakable truth about their narcissistic boss.
