THE COAST-TO-COAST BESTSELLER AND NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE starring simon PEGG, kirsten DUNST, megan FOX and jeff BRIDGES High-flying British journalist Toby Young set out for New York to become a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. Other Brits had taken Manhattan, why not Toby? But things didn't quite go according to plan. Within two years he'd been fired from Vanity Fair, banned from the most fashionable bar in the city, and couldn't get a date for love or money. Even the local AA group wanted nothing to do with him. How to Lose Friends and Alienate People is Toby Young's best-selling and critically acclaimed memoir of steadily working his way down the New York food chain from glossy magazine editor to crash-test dummy for interactive sex toys. A seditious attack on New York's A-list and the culture of celebrity from inside the belly of the beast, it's a book USA Today calls a ''nastily funny read.'' With a new postscript by the author on the making of the movie ''Hilarious lifestyles of the rich and shameless ... Young is a self-deprecating Tom Wolfe.''Biographie de l'auteur :
