9780718192327: A Diary of The Lady: My First Year As Editor

Novelist and, now, editor Rachel Johnson - author of "Notting Hell" and its sequel "Shire Hell" - takes on the challenge of saving Britain's oldest women's weekly ("The Lady" founded in 1885) from recession and closure in her hilarious diary written during her first eighteen months as editor of "The Lady in A Diary of The Lady: My First Year and a Half as Editor". 'The whole place seemed completely bonkers: dusty, tatty, disorganized and impossibly old-fashioned, set in an age of doilies and flag-waving patriotism and jam still for tea, some sunny day.' Appointed editor of "The Lady" - the oldest women's weekly in the world - Rachel Johnson faced the challenge of a lifetime. For a start, how do you become an editor when you've never, well, edited? How do you turn a venerable title, full of ads for walk-in baths, during the worst recession ever? And forget doubling the circulation in a year - what on earth do you wear to work when you've spent the last fifteen years at home in sweatpants? Will Rachel save "The Lady" - or sink it? "Action-packed, entertaining, marvellously indiscreet. Johnson is everything you want in a diarist and has a compulsive habit of saying the wrong thing". ("Sunday Times"). "She's a loose cannon. All she thinks of is sex. You can't get her away from a penis". (Mrs Julia Budworth, co-owner, "The Lady"). "A total romp, wonderfully readable, unflinchingly described". ("Guardian"). Rachel Johnson is known for her wickedly funny novels "The Mummy Diaries", "Notting Hell and its sequel "Shire Hell" - winner of the Literary Review's infamous Bad Sex in Fiction Award in 2008; "A Diary of the Lady" is her first non-fiction book published by Penguin.
