    DescriptionGossip. It's more than just hearsay. society columns, and supermarket tabloids. It has, like it or not, become a mainstay of American pop culture. In Dish, industry insider Jeannette Walls gives this provocative subject its due, offering a comprehensive, serious exploration of gossip and its social, historical, and political significance. Examining the topic from the inside out, Walls looks at the players; the origins of gossip, from birth of People magazine to the death of Lady Di; and how technology including the Internet will continue to change the face gossip. As compelling and seductive as its subject matter, Dish brilliantly reveals the fascinating inner workings of a phenomenon that is definitely here to stay.

    "Extraordinary." --"Don Imus"Strewn with delicious tidbits."--"Entertainment Weekly"It's an old fashioned sideshow, high-spirited, mean-spirited, and plenty of guilty fun...Snoopy scatoscopy at its juiciest." --"Kirkus Reviews"Provocative and invariably entertaining. Walls gives dishing the dirt its historical, social, and political due." --"Publishers Weekly"A fascinating, dishy story."--"Booklist"A history of how gossip became the news...Saucy, sassy..."--"Los Angeles Times"DISH is a serious and accurate history of a persistent part of media coverage."--"St. Louis Post-Dispatch"Jeannette Walls does a terrific job showing how the two divorced parties of news and gossip managed to get dragged back to the altar--kicking and screaming all the way--in the latter half of the 20th century."--"Toronto Sun"Hard to put down...DISH is irresistible...a revealing look at gossip in the early twenty-first century."--"US Weekly"A truly intelligent and absorbing examination of how gossip took over the news."--"The Boston Sunday GlobeA well-researched and intelligent exploration of gossip then and now."--"New York Daily News"DISH is a mouthful."--"San Antonio Express News"Written with intelligence and panache....deliciously described."--"SKY Magazine"Walls proves the quintessential insider, and a highly entertaining one at that....a must read."--"Variety"Well-written and solidly researched."--"Chicago Sun-Times"Dazzling.... You have to read this book from cover to cover. It's great, a wickedly intelligent wallow."--"Liz Smith, New York Post
