SPLASH!

STEPHEN GLOVER    Book Number: 83752    Product format: Hardback

Glamorous 2017 hardback we are delighted to have first time discounted written by the Oxford-based newspaperman. Sam Blunt is a drunken, broken-down tabloid reporter, whose days of derring-do seem to be long behind him, working for the Daily Bugle, a once-mighty newspaper struggling to come to terms with the digital age. With the assistance of Benedict Brewster, an earnest though clever wet-behind-the-ears trainee on the paper, Sam grapples to uncover the story of the century which reveals the political corruption and cynicism at the heart of a rotten Establishment. As they try to nail the story amid a series of adventures, Sam and Benedict are frustrated by the self-serving proprietor of the newspaper, various self-appointed do-gooders who want to rein in the Press, and Trevor Yapp, the malign and untrustworthy editor of Bugle Online. A witty clever satirical take on the Press and politicians in a world peopled by foreign billionaires, unnoticed immigrants, a corrupt and plaintive prime minister, and journalists who are often most interested in doing one another down. Welcome to the modern world! 266pp.
