I love this guy’s work. I crack up every time. Even with the golf journal that he wrote, and I know almost NOTHING about golf. He’s got a gift.

Meet twenty-two-year-old Cherry Pye (nee Cheryl Bunterman): a pop star since she was fourteen — and about to attempt a comeback from her latest drug-and-alcohol disaster.
Now meet Cherry again: in the person of her “undercover stunt double,” Ann DeLusia. Ann portrays Cherry whenever the singer is too “indisposed” — meaning wasted — to go out in public. And it is Ann-mistaken-for-Cherry who is kidnapped from a South Beach hotel by obsessed paparazzo Bang Abbott.
Now the challenge for Cherry’s handlers (uber stage mother; horndog record producer; nipped, tucked, and Botoxed twin publicists; weed whacker-wielding bodyguard) is to rescue Ann while keeping her existence a secret from Cherry’s public — and from Cherry herself.
The situation is more complicated than they know. Ann has had a bewitching encounter with Stink — the unhinged former governor of Florida living wild in a mangrove swamp — and now he’s heading to Miami to find her…
Will Bang Abbott achieve his fantasy of a lucrative private photo session with Cherry Pye? Will Cherry sober up in time to lip-synch her way through her concert tour? Will Stink track down Ann DeLuisa before Cherry’s motley posse does?
