From Vanity Fair magazine’s George Wayne comes a collection of piquant, poignant, and uncensored interviews with some of the most famous celebrities of our time, curated from his legendary Q&A column.
As a Contributing Editor to Vanity Fair, George Wayne has redefined, reimagined, and remastered the modern art of the conversation. For twenty years, he has documented pop culture with the George Wayne Questionnaire, his patented question and answer column, which has been one of the magazine’s most iconic and intriguing features. In each issue, he poses a series of offbeat questions to some the most captivating people in the world. Refreshingly unafraid to ask anything and everything, GW has perfected what he calls—the probe and parry—to break down protective facades and get inside the heads and hearts of his interviewees. The results have been humorous, often surprising, sometimes shocking, and always revealing.
Beautifully designed, The Uncensored Vanities is a collection of his most scandalous, outrageous, and fascinating conversations with the world’s famous and infamous, highlighted with annotations and memories of each interview. Cultural icons, royalty, and superstars of all kinds—including Kate Moss, Jane Lynch, Lady Gaga, Rachael Ray, Martha Stewart, Mark Wahlberg, Joan Rivers, Harvey Weinstein, 50 Cent, Graydon Carter, and many more—spill their secrets, candidly sharing their hopes and fears.
With social media increasingly dominating our personal interactions, The Uncensored Vanities demonstrates that nothing can replace an engaging and authentic tête-à-tête.
