Set in the highest echelon of the media, this saga of an American institution under siege is a bonfire of barbarians and boldface names.
Sarah Ellison, a former reporter for the Wall Street Journal, led the paper's coverage of Rupert Murdoch's bid for Dow Jones. Her stories about the media business have been recognized by the Newswomen's Club of New York and the New York Press Club. She lives in Brooklyn. Judith Brackley worked in major market radio for twenty years as an announcer, program director, and producer for commercial broadcast outlets and NPR affiliates. She has numerous radio spots, industrial voice-overs, and narrations to her credit, including for the Prudential Insurance Company, Gillette, Hewlett-Packard, Polaroid, and National Geographic. She is also a nationally published writer.
"Sarah Ellison has written a definitive, indeed cinematic, account.... She spins an absorbing yarn played out on super-yachts and in corporate jets, populated by an irresistible cast of characters." ---The New York Times Book Review
