Friends. Everyone needs them. Especially when relations between you and your family are less than perfect. And for the talented and ambitious Janet Street-Porter, her friends became her family. After the mirthless childhood she so superbly portrayed in Baggage , Janet moved on to the sexy and excessive world of the media in the 60s and 70s. Her talents and outrageousness attracted a whole host of disparate, fascinating and creative friends, who helped, and sometimes hindered, her path to success. But Janet's address book changed as the years went by. Friends fell out, and new ones came in. Fall Out is the story of these vibrant characters - some famous, some infamous, all extraordinary - and their often volatile relationships with her. Above all, it is a portrait of an exciting and creative era, by someone who lived it to the full.
