The Vanity Fair Diaries is the story of an Englishwoman barely out of her 20s who arrives in New York City with a dream. Summoned from London in hopes that she can save Condé 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.

If you lived through these times this will bring back vivid memories and a personal angle on what it was like at the centre of the excess. Love her commentary and astonishing drive and ambition. If you are in your 30s it will be hard to imagine this can be real.
