Celebrity is the new black...and Gus and Waldo want it badly. And they don't care how they get it, they just want to be famous.
In the couple's shameless quest for instant fame they try everything: appearing on a reality TV show, taking apart in a controversial art installation, forming a boy band, selling kiss-and-tell stories to the tabloids, even streaking at the football World Cup final. But will they manage to get their fifteen minutes of fame and end up on magazine covers from Heat to Vanity Fair?
As the BOOK OF FAME follows their escalating attempts to become famous and live the dream of Generation Me, Gus and Waldo discover through fishy trials of paps and red carpets that having everyone love you is far from important, as long as you're loved by that special someone, the world is at your feet.
