Jack Stack is an editor with the full-blown tabloid virus. He says bollocks” a lot and his headline signature is a double ejaculation mark.” He revels in Fleet Street’s nonstop silly season of hunting down young royals and petrifying cabinet members. He even outsmarts the Palace, prime minister, and proprietor to win a knighthood for services to journalism” at the hand of the sovereign whose family he has comprehensively shafted. When Jack takes over the beleaguered Mercury, within a day he transforms the formerly respectable newspaper into the most tabloid of all tabloids. His cut-the-crap management style has the old guard trembling in its boots, but has he met his match in the domineering Marina Marshall, the chairman’s mistress and the canniest columnist in Fleet Street? Perfect for an era obsessed with celebrity and spin, this is a beautifully crafted, laugh-out-loud novel written by an insider who has seen it all. Bernard Shrimsley, Books, Fiction and Literature, The Silly Season: A Novel Books>Fiction and Literature A brilliantly wicked satire of today's news world, from a former editor of "The Sun".
