Description


Journaling Fame takes readers inside the turbulent mind and precocious soul of celebrity journalist, Allison Kugel, as she recalls the evolution and fall out from a near paralyzing anxiety disorder while navigating a decade interviewing some of Hollywood's most famous (and infamous) names. Between numerous celebrity interactions and harrowing memories of youth and adolescents, she attempts to piece together the moments of her life that, both, built her career and fostered severe panic attacks that threatened to undo it all. Allison provides an ultimate insider's guide into the celebrity journalism and publicity machines that the public doesn't see, along with shared personal memories of high-profile Hollywood friendships. She pulls no punches when going into excruciating detail about her experiences with anxiety, panic attacks and obsessive compulsive disorder. Her memoir seamlessly weaves in and out of her professional triumphs and personal struggles with self-examination, humor and irony.
