The behind-the-scenes access of Almost Famous meets the searing revelations of metoo in this story of a teen journalist who uncovers the scandal of the decade. Ever since seventeen-year-old Josie Wright can remember, writing has been her identity, the thing that grounds her when everything else is a garbage fire. So when she wins a contest to write a celebrity profile for Deep Focus magazine, she's equal parts excited and scared, but also ready. She's got this. Soon Josie is jetting off on a multi-city tour, rubbing elbows with sparkly celebrities, frenetic handlers, stone-faced producers, and eccentric stylists. She even finds herself catching feelings for the subject of her profile, dazzling young newcomer Marius Canet. Josie's world is expanding so rapidly, she doesn't know whether she's flying or falling. But when a young actress lets her in on a terrible secret, the answer is clear: she's in over her head. One woman's account leads to another and another. Josie wants to expose the man responsible, but she's reluctant to speak up, unsure if this is her story to tell. What if she lets down the women who have entrusted her with their stories? What if this ends her writing career before it even begins? There are so many reasons not to go ahead, but if Josie doesn't step up, who will? From the author of Full Disclosure, this is a moving testament to the MeToo movement, and all the ways women stand up for each other. "Brave, necessary, and unflinchingly real, Off the Record is an instant classic." --Marieke Nijkamp, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of This Is Where It Ends
|Author||: Madeleine Westerhout|
|Editor||: Center Street|
Madeleine Westerhout, the former "gatekeeper" of the Trump White House, writes about her relationship with the president, and tells the story of the terrible mistake that led to her losing her job. From the first day President Trump stepped into the White House, Madeleine Westerhout was by his side, first as his executive assistant, then as the Director of Oval Office Operations. From her desk outside the Oval, she saw everyone who came in to see the president. She placed his phone calls, and was in the room for several historic moments. During her time working with President Trump at the White House, Camp David, Mar a Lago, and Bedminster, she grew to love her job and admire the president. Then, in an unguarded moment during a dinner with reporters, she made a terrible mistake. In Off the Record, Westerhout tells the full story of this dinner for the first time, revealing the circumstances that led to her fateful mistake. She also writes about her relationship with President Trump -- all the lessons she learned working with him, and why she believes he is a much different man than the one the media portrays every day. Westerhout describes President Trump as a kind and generous boss who continues to be a great leader for our country.

Because oral history interviews are personal interactions between human beings, they rarely conform to a methodological ideal. These reflections from oral historians provide honest and rigorous analyses of actual oral history practice that address the complexities of a human-centered methodology.

"For more than thirty years Tim Skubick has opened the door of state government with reporting that has taken us behind the scenes, onto the legislative floor and even into the Governor's office. His passionate brand of journalism has made an indelible mark on Lansing and on Michigan's political history." ---Governor Jennifer M. Granholm "Chatty, anecdotal, and sure to please political junkies." ---Meegan Holland, Booth Newspapers In the last thirty-four years Michigan residents have elected four governors-Milliken, Blanchard, Engler, and the state's first female chief executive, Jennifer Granholm. We have lived through the PBB poisoning of our food chain, seen governors and lieutenant governors battling for supremacy, watched women emerge as a powerful political force, and endured an endless cast of characters, clowns, crooks, and class acts on our political stage. Only one political journalist has had a front-row seat for all of these events and countless other stories that have shaped our lives since 1969. Now widely acclaimed TV-radio anchor and newspaper columnist Tim Skubick takes you behind the headlines for his inside skinny on Granholm's meteoric rise to governor and speculation that she'd make a great U.S. president. He also dissects the stunning upset victory of John Engler over Jim Blanchard and walks you through the grueling twenty-four-year journey to push property-tax relief through a recalcitrant state legislature. Skubick brings his breezy and witty writing style to a first-of-its-kind book that reveals an insider's edition of the stories about the stories you've never read before. Off the Record puts you in a front-row seat right next to the author and the politicians in a history-making book about Michigan politics. If you love the great state of Michigan, you'll love this book.
|Author||: Ajith Pillai|
|Editor||: Hachette India|
`[Ajith?s book] is the first full account I have seen between hard covers which is exclusively about a journalist?s adventures and journeys in the field... An extraordinary first ?rough draft of history?, a portrait of India from the 80s to the present time.? ? Vinod Mehta `Ajith Pillai?s account of his journalistic odyssey covers the period of India?s Great Transformation from the 1980s to the present. He does so with incisive wit and insight into a breathtaking range of issues. This ought to be a handbook for all aspiring journalists, since Pillai is an enemy of sycophantic corporate ideology and craven submissiveness to wealth and power which characterize most of today?s celebritywriters.? ? Jeremy Seabrook, British author and columnist In a journalist?s career, the best stories can seldom be published? Veteran journalist Ajith Pillai?s colourful career spanning nearly three decades has taken him from the murky underworld of Bombay to the icy heights of Kargil; yet, the reports he has written are only half the story. Now, for the first time, the `off-the-record? experiences that never found their way to print are presented in this witty and engaging memoir. Beginning with a call from a furious Chota Shakeel, Dawood Ibrahim?s right-hand man, asking him to retract a story on `Bhai? or face the consequence, Ajith takes the reader on a journey that sees him guide V.S. Naipaul to meet the `boys? from the underworld; follow the sensuous Silk Smitha around Bombay on a New Year?s eve; witness the first shots of Operation Vijay during the Kargil War; track, along with a colleague, a Brigadier accused of high treason across the country; stumble upon embarrassed Congressmen in Kamathipura, Bombay?s red-light district; discover who was actually pulling the strings during Vajpayee?s tenure as PM; and coordinate the coverage of the multimillion dollar Scorpene submarine scam and the sensational Radia tapes. Written with Ajith?s trademark wry humour, these real stories, often more entertaining than fiction, are a testament to a journalist?s life, as well as a comment on the changing nature of the effervescent Indian media.
|Author||: Neal Karlen|
|Editor||: St. Martin's Press|
A warm and surprisingly real-life biography, featuring never-before-seen photos, of one of rock’s greatest talents: Prince. Neal Karlen was the only journalist Prince granted in-depth press interviews to for over a dozen years, from before Purple Rain to when the artist changed his name to an unpronounceable glyph. Karlen interviewed Prince for three Rolling Stone cover stories, wrote “3 Chains o’ Gold,” Prince’s “rock video opera,” as well as the star’s last testament, which may be buried with Prince’s will underneath Prince’s vast and private compound, Paisley Park. According to Prince's former fiancée Susannah Melvoin, Karlen was “the only reporter who made Prince sound like what he really sounded like.” Karlen quit writing about Prince a quarter-century before the mega-star died, but he never quit Prince, and the two remained friends for the last thirty-one years of the superstar’s life. Well before they met as writer and subject, Prince and Karlen knew each other as two of the gang of kids who biked around Minneapolis’s mostly-segregated Northside. (They played basketball at the Dairy Queen next door to Karlen’s grandparents, two blocks from the budding musician.) He asserts that Prince can’t be understood without first understanding ‘70s Minneapolis, and that even Prince’s best friends knew only 15 percent of him: that was all he was willing and able to give, no matter how much he cared for them. Going back to Prince Rogers Nelson's roots, especially his contradictory, often tortured, and sometimes violent relationship with his father, This Thing Called Life profoundly changes what we know about Prince, and explains him as no biography has: a superstar who calls in the middle of the night to talk, who loved The Wire and could quote from every episode of The Office, who frequented libraries and jammed spontaneously for local crowds (and fed everyone pancakes afterward), who was lonely but craved being alone. Readers will drive around Minneapolis with Prince in a convertible, talk about movies and music and life, and watch as he tries not to curse, instead dishing a healthy dose of “mamma jammas.”
