Synopsis

The Diaries of a Fleet Street Fox by Lilly Miles

Sex, Drugs, Heartbreak and Scandal, this title deals with the inner workings of a tabloid newsroom. Fleet Street Fox's anonymity allows her to delve deep into the dark corners of that most guilty of pleasures - the tabloid expose. Acerbic, funny, and revelatory, her diaries show the heart within the hack as she tries to recover from a betrayal as devastating as any newspaper scandal. Now an internet smash, with over forty thousand followers on twitter, two hugely popular blogs and a reputation throughout the media industry, Foxy's diaries are juicy, shocking and as near to the knuckle as the lawyers would allow. The Diaries of a Fleet Street Fox tells the truth about her trade: the private scandals, victories and disasters that don't end up on the front page. This is the hardest story she has ever told.
