A bracing feminist appraisal of the pre #MeToo Noughties . . . explores how the media created a new and brutal environment in which the rules of engagement between celebrities, the press and public were changed
Caroline Sanderson, Bookseller Editor's Choice
'When I discovered Toxic I was immediately taken by the depth of Sarah's dedication, research and writing.'
Paris Hilton, Paris Hilton
A necessary and incisive feminist reckoning with the noughties. Insightful, exhilarating - and horrifying. What were we thinking?
Caroline Criado Perez, author of INVISIBLE WOMEN
Brilliant . . . made me realise how no one has pulled back and given an overall story to the last twenty years . . . It's clever because it makes me think about now
Adam Curtis, filmmaker
Living through the 00s, I never realised how casually cruel they were - how cruel we were - to famous women. Toxic is an incendiary page-turner that will make you reconsider the price of fame . . . and your opinion of Kim Kardashian. It's a Molotov cocktail hurled at the feet of celebrity culture
Helen Lewis, author of DIFFICULT WOMEN
