The Intern

| No Comments

Puffin are publishing a novel on a topical theme next month.

From the press release about the novel:

Being an intern has never been so popular or competitive... Just ask intern alumni Tom Hanks, Stella McCartney or Steven Spielberg. The subject of internships is highly topical and often contentious, but with graduate unemployment soaring, is work experience the only way to get ahead in an increasingly competitive job market?

'As I stood soaking it all in, my nerves were momentarily replaced by a rush of excitement: I was at the heartbeat of music.' Jay Merchant has landed an internship for the best job in music television. He has access-all-areas to the biggest VIP parties and the hottest celebrities all over the world. The velvet rope has been lifted and now he's got to capture it on camera. But behind the scenes, Jay is thrown into a life of early starts, late nights, blood, sweat and tears. He has six months to turn his intern dream into a real job - but at what price? It's time to face the music...

Dillon Khan was born in London, a city that educated him with a rich mix of music. He has been a music journalist since graduating from university, after which he spent eight years making shows about music, lifestyle and youth culture at MTV. In his collection he has 4,786 CDs, 3,669 tape cassettes, 6 vinyls, one 8-track and counting.
