Book Description

28 Nov 2003
Jack Stack, a no-nonsense cockney, takes over as editor of the beleaguered Mercury and within a day 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 most canny columnist in Fleet Street? Perfect for an era obsessed with media influence and spin, The Silly Season is a laugh-out-loud, satirical novel of tabloid power.

3.0 out of 5 stars OVER THE TOP!!! 7 Jan 2004
By A Customer
Anyone who knows nothing about the world of British tabloid journalism should read this book - even to be shocked!!! There are lots of exclamation marks and CAPITALS in bold type in this satirical novel - and the plot is X-rated and probably unsuitable for your maiden aunt. The author does not believe in understatement and the story races along in true soap opera style. But some wonderful pearls of wisdom gathered during a clearly crazed working life in the red-tops are included along with some good jokes and bon mots. Read and enjoy - but don't take seriously is the best advice - and Bernard Shrimsley's no doubt!!!!!!
