Praise for A Star Is Bored:
"A Star is Bored is an absolute knockout. Riotously funny and wickedly tender. The pitch-perfect absurdity and sharp heartbreak of this story come to life so vividly that the last page left me aching. Completely outrageous and positively lovely."
― Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones and the Six
“A Star is Bored is a warm, hilarious act - and celebration - of love. A novel that gloriously fails to commit the crime of boredom.”
― Patrick Ness, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Monster Calls.
“I’m in love with this hearty story of a hilarious Hollywood friendship. It’s fierce and funny and will warm your heart in these often frigid times. This is some queer chicken noodle soup for my soul, honey.”
― Jonathan Van Ness, New York Times bestselling author of Over the Top
"Aside from being laugh out loud funny, brazen, charming and exquisitely observed, ASIB is romantic, soulful and filled with tender sweetness. For those of us who knew Carrie and Byron it all brings back chokingly funny and necessarily sad memories of a uniquely beautiful and deranged ménage, but it will make every reader feel at home and a part of it too."
― Stephen Fry, author and actor
"I didn't go into this expecting a love story, but the one here between a Hollywood assistant and his famous, hilarious and deeply lonely boss came very close to breaking my heart.”
― Julia Claiborne Johnson, bestselling author of Be Frank With Me
"Byron Lane has written a book that will touch you on so many levels. I was prepared for the laughs, but didn't expect the poignant story of a relationship both difficult and wonderful at the same time. A terrific read."
― Laurie Gelman, bestselling author of Class Mom and You've Been Volunteered
