Customer Review

on 7 October 2010
This brilliant diary is witty, funny and eye-poppingly indiscreet. Rachel Johnson describes her first year as the editor of The Lady, a faded magazine in genteel decline. Crackling with energy, this book charts the head-on collision between Rachel (modern, metropolitan and smart as a whip) with its diehard readers who froth with indignation at any hint of change and the bemused owners, the Budworth family (who clearly didn't quite realise what they'd let themselves in for).
This book is also a page-turner. Will Rachel be able to turn the old girl round in time? She's clearly worked her socks off,and she's done a damn good job with the magazine. As a regular reader I can report that the new-look Lady is vastly improved: intelligent, warm, funny and packed with good writers - Alexander Chancellor, Mary Killen, Antonia Fraser, Quentin Letts, and lots of articles by Rachel Johnson herself.
