Jack Stack is an editor with the full-blown tabloid virus. He says 'bollocks' a lot and his headline signature is a 'double ejaculation mark'. He revels in Fleet Street's non-stop silly season of hunting down young royals and petrifying cabinet members. He even outsmarts the Palace, Prime Minister and proprietor to win a knighthood for 'services to journalism' at the hand of the sovereign whose family he has comprehensively shafted. Jack takes over the beleaguered Mercury and within a day transforms the formerly respectable newspaper into the most tabloid of all tabloids. His cut-the-crap management style has the old guard trembling in its boots, but has he met his match in the domineering Marina Marshall - the chairman's mistress and the most canny columnist in Fleet Street? Perfect for an era obsessed with celebrity and spin, The Silly Season is a beautifully crafted, laugh-out-loud, satirical novel. Written by an insider who has seen it all, Bernard Shrimsley has drawn on his vast experiences. Bernard Shrimsley has been Editor of the Sun, News of the World and Mail on Sunday. He also edited the Daily Mirror in Manchester and the Daily Post in Liverpool, and helped edit both the Daily Express and Sunday Express. This is his third novel.
