9780099551966: The Spoiler

Tamara Sim, a ruthlessly ambitious young journalist, is thrilled when she is sent to interview veteran war correspondent Honor Tait. Finally - a chance for Tamara to prove that there's more to her than forged expenses claims and the 'what's in/what's out' column she churns out for her tabloid. But Honor isn't an easy subject; cold and evasive to the point of rudeness, it's almost as if she has something to hide. And when Tamara starts to do some digging (not all of it strictly legal) she makes a discovery which has devastating consequences for them both...

In The Spoiler, the former literary editor of the Financial Times and the Guardian offers a first hand glimpse into the world of British journalism.

Review:

"A wonderfully entertaining comedy of manners about the dying days of Fleet Street and the cult of celebrity... The Spoiler is a clever, literary romp with flashes of Nancy Mitford and Helen Fielding... A darkly, deliciously witty read" ( Independent on Sunday)

"Brilliant ... It grips from the first with verbal polish and razor-sharp satire" ( Mail on Sunday)

"Masterful... a strikingly entertaining and accomplished novel" (Sarah Sands Evening Standard)

"A wily, insightful and engaging book about human nature... McAfee has an excellent eye for detail and a wry comic touch... The Spoiler has a cracking plot, alive with twists and turns and meaning" (Sarah Vine The Times)

"Extremely funny and sharply observed... Seizes the noble tradition of the Journalism Novel and rings some delightful changes on it" ( Independent)

Book Description:

She'd do anything for a story - a darkly funny and compelling novel about a young female tabloid journalist desperate to further her career.
