What Is the Story of Mr. and Mrs. Fitch?
For years, Mr. Fitch has been considered gossip royalty. He and his wordsmith wife’s reputation was built on documenting the rises, falls, exploits and dalliances of the famous in a gossip column of a major publication. In recent months, however, Mr. and Mrs. Fitch have found their celebrity juice running low, drained by an onslaught of bloggers and other amateurs. Desperate for a scoop and delirious from a night of fruitless party-hopping, the duo takes creative license to meet a deadline—namely, creating a fictional celebrity from thin air. When their phantom “it” boy takes on a life of his own, Mr. and Mrs. Fitch get a lesson in fame gaming—and may have to admit that the party is over.
