Summary
At twenty-two, a naïve Midwesterner, Adrienne Miller got a lucky break when she was hired as an editorial assistant at GQ. The mid-nineties were still the golden age of print journalism, and a publication like GQ then seemed the red-hot center of the literary world, even if their sensibilities were manifestly mid-century...the martinis, the male egos, and the unquestioned authority of kings. Still, Adrienne learned to hold her own in a man's world, and three years later she forged her own path, becoming the first woman to hold the role of literary editor at Esquire. She was at Esquire during a unique moment in history that simultaneously saw the last days of the old guard of literary titans, and the rise of a new movement, as exemplified by David Foster Wallace, who would become her closest friend, confidant...and antagonist. Here is the untold story of an intellectual and artistic exchange that grew into a highly charged relationship, and Miller presents a candid portrait of the mercurial man behind the spotlight. It is also an account of the guarded literary world, which asks the question: How does a young woman fit into this culture and at what cost? With wit and deep intelligence, Miller presents a moving portrayal of a young woman's education in a land of men.

Summary
The irreverent diaries of the author's celebrated years as editor-in-chief of Vanity Fair also serves as a vibrant portrait of the 1980s in New York and Hollywood, describing her summons from London in the hopes of saving Condé Nast's troubled periodical and her experiences within the cutthroat world of glamour magazines.
"The Vanity Fair Diaries is the story of a young Englishwoman--barely out of her twenties, Oxford-educated, Fleet Street-honed--who arrives in Manhattan on a mission. Summoned from London to attempt a do-or-die rescue of Condé Nast's flailing new flagship, Vanity Fair, she is instantly plunged into the competitive maelstrom of the New York media world and the backstabbing court rivalries of the planet's slickest, most glamour-focused magazine company. She survives the politics, the intrigue, and the attempts to derail her with a simple stratagem: succeeding. In the face of rampant skepticism, she triumphantly reinvents a failing magazine. Throughout the diaries, you are immersed, real time, in the fateful choices that could close the magazine--or lead to the news scoops and images that entranced 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. You are at the editor's side in divining what people want to read, in the craft of shaping the stories, the recruitment and nourishing of writers, and the mysterious alchemy of photographs and headlines. Brown writes with an insider's access to and an outsider's skepticism of the antics of the rich, the famous, and the foolish. But her diaries are also a woman's intimate journey, of making a home in a new country and of the deep bonds with her husband, their prematurely born son, and their daughter. She manages priorities between their bedtimes and her deadlines. And she battles the boys' club when it matters. Tina Brown's The Vanity Pair Diaries is a fascinating real-time chronicle of a remarkable woman's adventures in a glittering--and scorching--era."--Dust jacket flaps.
