Liz Smith says Mr. Confidential reads like, "A house afire in a sultry swamp!" Publishers Weekly gives it a starred review, and calls it, "Hard boiled-yet juicy... an apt, unflinching take on the wildly popular tabloid!" And Booklist raves, happily urging readers to, "Get a load of it!" while Cox News Service goes highbrow, chapioning the book's take on, "The neurotic underpinning of the American Dream." But sshhh! Keep it Confidential...




SEX, SCANDAL and sensationalism. Libel suits and humiliations. Idols with feet of clay. Think it’s anything new? Not at all. Slip into the compulsively lurid and exhaustively researched pages of "Mr. Confidential" which tells the tale of publisher Robert Harrison and his magazine, "Confidential." That forerunner of celebrity dirt quite literally changed the face of entertainment journalism. It reads like a house afire in a sultry swamp. Nobody did ‘down and dirty’ like Mr. Harrison and today’s beleaguered stars, politicians and others owe him a sock in the jaw. An illuminating, fun read!
