Synopsis

A brilliantly evocative memoir from the golden age of newspaper publishing, from a man who helped define our modern media.







Les Hinton worked with Rupert Murdoch for more than five decades, and in that time witnessed the transformation of our media landscape. From copy boy at Murdoch's first paper to senior executive at News Corp, his stories about Clinton and Blair, Brown and Cameron, Princess Diana, Johnny Rotten, phone-hacking, and the man himself, Rupert Murdoch, are as insightful as they are revolutionary. This is one of the defining media memoirs of our age.

Les Hinton was born in Bootle, Merseyside, in 1944, the son of a British Army sergeant. For the first 15 years of his life he lived in Egypt, Eritrea, Libya, Germany, Singapore, and numerous places in Britain. In 1959, his family emigrated to Adelaide, South Australia, where he became a copy boy in a small evening newspaper owned by a rising young publisher, Rupert Murdoch. In the next 52 years, as Murdoch grew his empire, Hinton travelled the world, first as a correspondent, later as one of Murdoch's most senior executives. He lives with his wife Kath in New York and London. This is his first book.
