From Hollywood to Bollywood -- This Scandal Rocks the House

Kevin Glavin Publishing Announces New Book "Rock Star's Rainbow"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 5, 2010) - Just in case you aren't getting enough celebrity gossip this awards week, Kevin Glavin Publishing has announced the extended release of "Rock Star's Rainbow" (ISBN: 978-0-9825466-0-4). The new novel uncovering the recent shocking incidents involving one of the world's most cherished "icons" is now widely available in hardcover, paperback, and ebook versions.

The far-fetched story begins in August 2009, when a renowned entertainment reporter is thrown out of a plane over Los Angeles. At the time of his unfortunate death, he was completing a manuscript detailing the strange personal life of the most secretive megastar of our time -- Rook. Luckily, this work in progress was rescued, although the details remain obscure. Now, assembled here is the sought after exposé of the infamous rock star, searching for his lost innocence. The quixotic adventure journeys from LA, to Amsterdam, to India, and back. Along the way, Rook struggles with celebrity excess, reignites with his old flame, gets mixed up with the mafia, and must rescue the daughter he never knew he had. From the heights of hedonism to the depths of despair, this topical parody explores the beast of fame.

Author Kevin Glavin, an English teacher in Claremont, CA, assumes the archaic guise of "editor," connecting the dots of this rather bizarre, reverse coming-of-age story, "Rock Star's Rainbow."

The novel is in part a pastiche, alluding to elements of "Don Quixote," "Either/Or," "Ulysses," "Satyricon," "Crime and Punishment," and other classic works.

Review copies and interviews with the author may be arranged upon request.

Available for $24.95 (hardcover) and $14.95 (paperback) through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other fine retailers.
