Vanity Fair Launches New E-Book on Rupert Murdoch

Everything Rupert Murdoch is in vogue right now. Profiles in magazines, TV talking heads examining his health, Rupert Bobblehead Night – if you’ve got something about News Corp.’s man, you’ve most likely got yourself a hit. So it’s no surprise that Vanity Fair’s second e-book ever takes an in-depth look at the man.

Rupert Murdoch: The Master Mogul of Fleet Street, takes 20 selected pieces from the pages of Vanity Fair and puts them in one, tiny electronic place (it’s available on the Kindle or Nook).

The book documents Murdoch’s journey from Fleet Street until now, and includes works from Sarah Ellison, Edward Klein, James Wolcott, and Michael Wolff and more.

Vanity Fair Obtains, Reviews O.J. Book

James Wolcott on the unpublished yet increasingly easy-to-find If I Did It:

The banal horror of this book—apart from the ghoulish sanctimony of Judith Regan‘s entrepreneurial gusto that attended it—is that O.J. Simpson professes to open up and, once open, there’s nobody home, nobody there, nothing inside. It’s a vanishing act in full view.
