Ra is haunted by her past; Tamara Sim b 1970 who compiles lists of what's in and what's out for Psst the weekend entertainment supplement of The Monitor is struggling to secure her future at any cost in an increasingly precarious industry When Sim is sent to interview Tait their mutual incomprehension generates a rich seam of dark comedy But when their different worlds finally collide the conseuences are devastatingMcAfee's trenchant firs. Loved the sentences with nary a padding every word tells counts for something Rhythm of writing great with changes for two points of view And so sobering this book how tabloid attacks made of curdled whipped cream lies can ruin lives and leave sterling reputations tarnished we know it but watching it hurts a lot The way old age shreds the ego of the public achiever or any of us leaving a competent renowned person a shell yes like the film The Artist The way feckless youth can scythe through a worthy life and go drink champagne after Respect as a lost concept Dignity as a cape Honor and Tamara memorable in torment Well done

The SpoilerT novel is part satire part portrait of an era poised unknowingly on the brink of a technological revolution New Labour is about to take over newspapers are increasingly obsessed by the private lives of popstars models and footballers and Honor Tait and her kind are an endangered species But is Tait really such a beacon of truth and integrity And as this darkly witty novel asks is compassion the first casualty in the search for a good sto. Honor Tait is a elderly renowned war correspondent; Tamara Sim is a freelance tabloid journalist who is used to doing stories on “The Worst Bad Hair Days” They meet for an interview when some of Ms Tait’s journalism is to be re issued and they don’t get along Ms Tait feels that Ms Sim doesn’t know anything She’s right of course When Tait mentions the 38th parallel Sim can only wonder “Parallel to what” But Sim feels Tait is just as ignorant She’s right as well Tait is ignorant of what is currently fancied by the newspaper reading public They want juicy details of private life What could a readership raised on a steady diet of people who are famous for being famous care about real achievement and reporting on events they don’t remember Anxious to make a mark at a glossy prestigious magazine supplement Tamara is determined to dig up some dirt There is dirt of a sort to be dug However the story she breaks is not true and is not significant to Honor Tait Honor’s shame is attached to something did or failed to do as a journalist This is a funny serious book The interplay between journalists if you can call them that in the newsroom and the relationship between Honor and Tamara are fascinatingAnd Tait’s observation that the people currently covering what they see as news combine great ignorance with great confidence seems to me right on the mark
