9780349121406: How to Lose Friends and Alienate People [movie tie-in]: A Memoir

THE COAST-TO-COAST BESTSELLER AND NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE starring simon PEGG, kirsten DUNST, megan FOX and jeff BRIDGES High-flying British journalist Toby Young set out for New York to become a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. Other Brits had taken Manhattan, why not Toby? But things didn't quite go according to plan. Within two years he'd been fired from Vanity Fair, banned from the most fashionable bar in the city, and couldn't get a date for love or money. Even the local AA group wanted nothing to do with him. How to Lose Friends and Alienate People is Toby Young's best-selling and critically acclaimed memoir of steadily working his way down the New York food chain from glossy magazine editor to crash-test dummy for interactive sex toys. A seditious attack on New York's A-list and the culture of celebrity from inside the belly of the beast, it's a book USA Today calls a ''nastily funny read.'' With a new postscript by the author on the making of the movie ''Hilarious lifestyles of the rich and shameless ... Young is a self-deprecating Tom Wolfe.'' - People ''Achingly funny.'' - Globe and Mail (Toronto)

About the Author:

Toby Young has been fired from a succession of prestigious newspapers and magazines, including the Times of London, Vanity Fair, and, most recently, the Evening Standard. He is currently an associate editor of the Spectator. He lives in London. For more information, see his website: www.tobyyoung.com.

From AudioFile:

British journalist Toby Young should have been the best person to read his own gossipy, occasionally bitter, but mostly hilarious memoir of his time at Vanity Fair. Given the personal nature of the book--he hobnobbed with movie stars, screwed up assignments, fell in love, and generally drank too much--and his melodious BBC delivery, this production should have worked. But Young shows poor judgment by ascribing grating voices to every character. He does a passable American accent, but everyone is improbably gruff, whining, or buffoonish--even the celebrities, whom he is utterly unable to imitate. This is still a funny work, but a straight-up delivery would have allowed listeners to laugh without cringing. D.B. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Descripción Little, Brown Book Group, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1995, high-flying British journalist Toby Young left London for New York to become a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. Other Brits had taken Manhattan - Alistair Cooke, Tina Brown, Anna Wintour - so why couldn t he? Surely, it would only be a matter of time before the Big Apple was in the palm of his hand. But things did not go according to plan. Within the space of two years he was fired from Vanity Fair, banned from the most fashionable bar in the city and couldn t get a date for love or money. Even the local AA group wanted nothing to do with him. How To Lose Friends Alienate People is Toby Young s hilarious account of the five years he spent steadily working his way down the New York food chain, from glossy magazine editor to crash-test dummy for interactive sex toys. But it s not just a collection of self-deprecating anecdotes. It s also a seditious attack on the culture of celebrity from inside the belly of the beast. Not since Bonfire of the Vanities has the New York A-list been so mercilessly lampooned - and it all really happened!. Nº de ref. de la librería AA29780349121406
