What promises to be an onslaught of publicity for Tatiana Boncompagni's novel Gilding Lily is just beginning. The book, which sounds more than a little autobiographical, isn't out till September 9th, but HarperCollins released a video of Boncompagni (in a low-cut dress, natch) poking fun at the high society her characters inhabit—which is a neat pre-emptive measure against being dismissed as yet another author of shallow chick lit. Because if she deliberately wrote it that way, it's actually satire! See Tatiana laugh at herself and her ilk after the jump.
