Summary
  • Tina Brown kept delicious daily diaries throughout her eight spectacular years as editor in chief of Vanity Fair. Today they provide an incendiary portrait of the flash and dash and power brokering of the Excessive Eighties in New York and Hollywood
  • The Vanity Fair Diaries is the story of an Englishwoman barely out of her twenties who arrives in New York City with a dream. Summoned from London in hopes that she can save Conde Nast's troubled new flagship Vanity Fair, Tina Brown is immediately plunged into the maelstrom of the competitive New York media world and the backstabbing rivalries at the court of the planet's slickest, most glamour-focused magazine company. She survives the politics, the intrigue, and the attempts to derail her by a simple stratagem: succeeding. In the face of rampant skepticism, she triumphantly reinvents a failing magazine. Throughout the diaries you are immersed in the fateful choices that could close the magazine-- or lead to the news scoops and images that entranced millions: the Reagan kiss, the meltdown of Princess Diana's marriage to Prince Charles, the sensational Annie Leibovitz cover of a gloriously pregnant, naked Demi Moore. Brown shares an insider's access to and an outsider's skepticism of the antics of the rich, the famous, and the foolish. But her diaries are also a woman's intimate journey, of making a home in a new country and of the deep bonds with her husband, their prematurely born son, and their daughter. And she battles the boys' club when it matters. Tina Brown's The Vanity Fair Diaries is a fascinating real-time chronicle of a remarkable woman's adventures in a glittering--and scorching--era
