A press release arrives, announcing the imminent publication of a book which is rather grandly trailing itself as "Amy Winehouse's first biography" - assuming, of course, you drop your standards to describe the book as a proper biography. While simultaneously discounting Nick Johnstone's Amy Amy Amy from last year.
It's an endeavour which has the slight taint of a disappointment they can't subtitle it 'the full story of her life' - indeed, the press blurb reprints the words of the Daily Telegraph about the man who assembled the book:
Clearly, John Blake Publishing views that as praise rather than a judgement.
And who is Mr. Newkey-Burden?
Ah. A man who is playing the Tony Parsons role in the current version of the Burchill pantomime, and a Boswell to Paris Hilton as well as to Winehouse. One wonders how he finds the time.
Oh: could it be Google?
