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.
