This volume is a collection of the columns the author wrote for Esquire magazine from 1975 to 1977. Her subject was the media, especially print journalism.

Stabbing, tackling and (occasionally) hugging her colleagues of the press and screen, the author reveals her contempt for the Haldeman-CBS episode; her passion for Upstairs, Downstairs; and her jaundiced view of Brendan Gill on The New Yorker and Teddy White on anything
