It's gossipy and moves at a frenzied pace as it inhabits the decadence of the NYC fashion world in the 80s. Here are the inside stories of Vanity Fair scoops and covers that sold millions. Its also a book about a senior woman at work and the challenges she faces as she transfers from the Tatler in London to Manhattan where she is challenged to bring Vanity Fair out of the doldrums - all this and she was still only in her mid-twenties.
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. Here are the inside stories of VANITY FAIR scoops and covers that sold 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. In the diary's cinematic pages, the drama, the comedy, and the struggle of running an 'it' magazine come to life. Brown's VANITY FAIR DIARIES is also a woman's journey, of making a home in a new country and of the deep bonds with her husband, their prematurely born son, and their daughter. Astute, open-hearted, often riotously funny, Tina Brown's THE VANITY FAIR DIARIES is a compulsively fascinating and intimate chronicle of a woman's life in a glittering era.
