Stop Press Summary

Stop Press by Tim Heald

When Fisher , the literary editor of the Conscience, is fired he goes quietly. But not as quietly as it seems. Before long he is back in journalism, thinly disguised as a "Media Consultant" wreaking havoc among his former employers. By the time he has finished, the Prime Minister and his boy friend are inextricably entwined with Great Britain's womens rugby team as they are hunted down by a motley gang of hacks orgainsed by Fisher in a war-torn banana republic about which no-newspaper wishes to know anything unless it is to do with sex, soap or the Royal Family. Tim Heald wrote a novel set amidst British National Press once before. The New York Times said that it was almost as good as that all tine Fleet Street classic, Evelyn Waugh's scoop." This time, attacking his subject with savage glee, he has gone one better. STOP PRESS is rude, angry, accurate and very funny. Present day newspaper editors and proprietors - take heed!
