WORD: Celebrity journalist Anna David turns novelist with 'Party Girl'

It seems the trend du jour is gossip reporters turning to the novel as a medium to express the underbelly of fame, decadence and excess. Anna David, who has written for tabloid staples like US Weekly, has a different spin in her novel 'Party Girl,' which HarperCollins launches this month.

Described as one of Hollywood’s most intrepid pop culture reporters, Anna’s fiction debut follows the misadventures of Amelia Stone, a character whose escapades show us the best - and worst - of living in the fast lane as a hard-partying celebrity journalist who leads a double life.

HarperCollins says the novel is based on Anna’s real-life experiences in celebrity journalism, and if her comments that she spent "a good 15 years or so of imbibing more than my share of alcohol, pills and cocaine" are any indication, this hardcover novel should make for some amusing reading.

The launch party for Party Girl is slated for Friday, June 8 at West Hollywood’s Book Soup, beginning at 7 pm. Book Soup is located at 8818 Sunset Boulevard.

Anna hits New York City from June 25-29, when she begins an author tour. One of her appearances will be a signing, reading and talk with Rachel Kramer Bussel on Thursday, June 28 at Borders Books and Music, located at 10 Columbus Circle, starting at 7 pm.
