Серия: "-"

Maya Lowe is one of the world's biggest movie stars. Steve Watkins is her life-long friend. Both swear their relationship hasn't changed since they shared a school desk as London teenagers. But can a friendship like theirs really survive a fame as great as Maya's? Can a man like Steve, working away for a Heathrow logistics company, seriously remain part of her life? He certainly thinks so. But amid the twists and turns of Maya's public and private lives, the gulf between what Steve thinks and what is actually true gets ever wider. And in a world where the obsession with celebrity seems to make everyone want to be one, truth is hard to find. Set in modern-day Britain, America and France, Alastair Campbell's second novel is part psychological thriller, part exploration of the psychology of fame. Steve is a brilliantly ambiguous figure, narrating a story full of morally complex characters from the worlds of film, business, TV, journalism and private investigation. Whether through stars with a love-hate relationship with their public; agents milking the culture of celebrity; a media that cannot get enough because the public always want more, Campbell depicts a society feeding vainly on fame, and the dangerous consequences for those caught up in its frenzy.

Campbell, Alastair

(1957– )
   A former political correspondent with the Daily Mirror who became a close adviser to Neil Kinnock but eventually more well known for his services to Tony Blair. One of the architects of New Labour, he played an important role in the run-up to the 1997 election, working with Peter Mandelson to coordinate Labour’s campaign. Then and thereafter, he intervened personally to complain whenever media outlets ran stories which he felt to be unfavourable to the leader or party. After the election, Campbell became the Director of Communications and Strategy for Ten Downing Street, having responsibility for the government’s press machine. He assumed a role of considerable behind-the-scenes influence, often directing civil servants who were used to taking instructions only from government ministers. He was viewed with suspicion, even hostility, by elements within the party, though few questioned his skill in the arts of news management. He became embroiled in controversy in the build-up to and aftermath of the Iraq war, being a central figure in the ‘dodgy dossier’ episode and then later being accused by Andrew Gilligan of having ‘sexed up’ the Government’s case for war in its earlier dossier. Lord Hutton cleared Campbell of acting improperly, but the report was widely seen as a ‘whitewash’. Campbell resigned shortly afterwards, although he surfaced again as – in effect but not in title – Labour’s director of communications during the 2005 election campaign.
