Very interesting read, although a bit more than you want to know about the media. Really enjoy Walls writing.
This is a really good book. Written by Jeannette Walls and almost as good as her Glass Castle. Its all about gossip, but more about the tabloids, how they got started and about the gossip columests. Well written and if you like this genre you will love this book.
You KNOW you snuck a look at the new issue of People magazine you found lying around at work...or did you buy it on the way and keep it in your car, hoping no one would see? This book talks about the why and what for of the gossip mill industry. Also dicusses gossip highs and lows, from Sinatra to Cher to Elvis to O.J. Interesting read.
Loved it...the history of Hollywood gossip industry and where it is today.
Really interesting book about tabloid journalism, how and why it's so popular. It will change your opinion of some famous people, not for the better, and could change your opinion of tabloids, maybe for the better.
