Tina Brown kept delicious daily diaries throughout her eight spectacular years as editor-in-chief of Vanity Fair. Today they provide an incendiary portrait of the flash and dash and power brokering of the Excessive Eighties in New York and Hollywood.

The Vanity Fair Diaries is the story of an Englishwoman barely out of her twenties who arrives in New York City with a dream. Summoned from London in hopes that she can save Conde 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. She survives the politics, the intrigue, and the attempts to derail her by a simple stratagem: succeeding. In the face of rampant skepticism, she triumphantly reinvents a failing magazine.

Here are the inside stories of Vanity Fair scoops and covers that sold millions--the Reagan kiss, the meltdown of Princess Diana's marriage to Prince Charles, the sensational Annie Leibovitz cover of a gloriously pregnant, naked Demi Moore. In this cinematic audiobook, the drama, the comedy, and the struggle of running an "it" magazine come to life. Brown's Vanity Fair Diaries is also a woman's journey, of making a home in a new country and of the deep bonds with her husband, their prematurely born son, and their daughter.

Astute, open-hearted, often riotously funny, Tina Brown's The Vanity Fair Diaries is a compulsively fascinating and intimate chronicle of a woman's life in a glittering era.

Back in the days I was a huge magazine enthusiast. In best months I could receive over twenty magazines from all over the world, and this amount did not include the actual newspapers I liked to surf through in my free time, too. I still have huge piles of unread issues of Marie Claire (UK and US e...

A fun gossipy read! “The writer of a memoir or a history knows from the outset where the story is going and how it will end. The diarist doesn’t have a clue what’s around the corner. All one can know about is the past and, with any luck, the onrushing present. That’s a feature of the form, not a b...

I first became aware of Tina Brown when I saw an interview with her on British television. It was back in the 80’s and I think she was editor-in-chief at the UK society magazine Tatler at the time. I do remember being amazed at how this young women (she'd have been in her mid twenties then) was i...

The 'he' in question was Donald Trump! She saw his familiar Elvis coif making off across the Crystal Room. The sneaky, petulant infant was clearly still stewing about her takedown in VF over a year ago and had taken a glass of wine from the tray and emptied it down her back! What a coward! He co...

When I saw this come up on NetGalley I was looking for a lighthearted read between my usual thriller and YA novels and this seemed ideal. I found it intriguing and felt compelled to read on. This is a book full to the brim with gossip and news heard through the grapevine. I thought I would enjoy...

Being a long-time subscriber of Vanity Fair, I found it great fun to read Tina Brown's diaries of her time as editor of the magazine in the 1980's. A in her late twenties who had transformed the British society magazine, Tatler, as well as marrying the much-older editor of the London Times, Harry...

Devilishly good read. So much scattered, yet very prescient, comments on Trump. But the book isn’t about Trump. I just found it funny how her comments about him indicate he just never grew up (and was always insecure about his tiny hands).
