|Plot Summary of Bite|
Downtown, Sep 2004, 13.00, 377 pp.
Sam Leighton works for Star Face magazine interviewing Hollywood stars. Her best friend Tom Sanders edits the lifestyle column for Profit magazine. Sam is assigned to learn whether Mel Gibson had hair plugs, but instead gets in trouble because rumors fly that she lost her reporting impartiality by becoming too close with Russell Crowe.
Tom feels bad for his pal so he takes her out on a martini lunch to drown her sorrows. A few drinks later, Tom proposes that they combine their expertise and begin their own magazine. Thus Bite is created as an entertainment magazine which emphasizes Hollywood sex and fun in that order. Bite begins to take shape in spite of the eccentricity and sexual inclinations of the staff until treachery threatens to destroy the project before the first issue is published.
This is a biting satirical look at the glamour magazine world.
