While on the road promoting his latest novel “Pygmy”, Chuck openly talked about his next novel. In fact, Chuck revealed that, while caring for his mother last year, he actually wrote three novels! The one which is going to drop in 2010 is called “Tell All” and if you thought Chuck couldn’t get anymore original and daring… think again.
The plot: The novel will feature Lillian Hellman, a real life playright. She is best known as Dashielle Hammet’s lover and the writer of the controversial film “The Children’s Hour” which featured Audrey Hepburn and Shirley McClain as lesbians. According to the interview, Chuck wants to reinvent her as a “larger than life Super Hero” and talk about her incredible life and exploits, as she wrote about them in her memoir “An Unfinished Woman”.
