Ann Tenna

A Novel

Description

From the celebrated New Yorker cartoonist and acclaimed author of Cancer Vixen, a brilliant, funny, and wildly imaginative first novel: the story of an influential gossip columnist brought face-to-face with her higher self—and a challenge to change her life for the better.

Glamorous, superconnected Ann Tenna is the founder of Eyemauler, a New York City-based Web site that’s always the first to dish the most up-to-the-minute dirt on celebrities and ordinary folks alike. Ann has ascended to the zenith of the New York media scene, attended by groups of grovelers all too willing to be trampled on by her six-inch Giuseppe Zanottis if it means better seats at the table.

But as high as her success has taken her, Ann has actually fallen far—very far—from her true self. It takes a near-fatal freak accident on her birthday—April Fool’s Day—and an intervention from her cosmic double in a realm beyond our own to make Ann realize the full cost of the humanity she has lost.

Told with laugh-out-loud humor, spot-on dialogue (including via cameo appearances from Coco Chanel, Gianni Versace, and Jimi Hendrix, to name just a few), and stunning, full-color artwork, Ann Tenna is a timely, necessary tale for our overly “media-cated” times: the newest, much-anticipated adventure from a supremely gifted artist at the height of her powers.

From Publishers Weekly

May 11, 2015 – Marchetto (Cancer Vixen) spins a cautionary tale of celebrity warfare, family ties, and astral projection in this splashy book. Ann Tenna, the reigning queen of gossip blogging, has clawed her way to international fame and fortune. She's as loathed as she is loved, but no one can ignore her. After a catastrophic car crash, Ann discovers that her destiny lies far beyond the red carpet and in the stars themselves. Ann has been called by the cosmic powers that be into service as a beacon of love and light for a cynical world. Allowed a few months to make the transition, Ann confronts family, friends, colleagues, and, most crucially, herself. Marchetto's art balances glamour and sleaze to wonderful effect: Ann's eyelashes are dramatically long, guardian angels prowl about in Versace originals, and goddesses wear two-foot-high platforms. With art and writing in perfect harmony, Marchetto has crafted a warm romp of a story that's a tribute to feminine fantasy and midlife transformation, with its heart worn boldly on a beautifully tailored sleeve.
