Summary This volume is a collection of the columns the author wrote for Esquire magazine from 1975 to 1977. Her subject was the media, especially print journalism. She presents her opinions of 1970's media -- from People magazine, Daniel Schorr and the Assassination reporters, to the Palm Beach Social Pictorial, Gourmet magazine and the lure and history of the Double-Crostic. Stabbing, tackling and (occasionally) hugging her colleagues of the press and screen, the author reveals her contempt for the Haldeman-CBS episode; her passion for Upstairs, Downstairs; and her jaundiced view of Brendan Gill on The New Yorker and Teddy White on anything.
