About the Author
Tina Brown was 25 when she became the editor in chief of England’s oldest glossy, The Tatler, reviving the nearly defunct 270-year-old magazine with an attitude and style that gave it a 300 percent circulation rise. She went on to become the editor in chief of Vanity Fair and won four National Magazine Awards. In 1992 she became the first female editor of the New Yorker, where she raised circulation by 145 percent on the newsstand and was honored with four George Polk Awards, five Overseas Press Club Awards, and ten National Magazine Awards, including a 1995 award for General Excellence, the first in the magazine’s history. She is also the author of The Diana Chronicles. Ms. Brown was awarded CBE (Commander of the British Empire) from Queen Elizabeth in 2000. She is married to Sir Harold Evans. The couple have two children and reside in New York.
