In Tabloid, Morris concocts another jaw-dropping portrayal, thistime of a phenomenally driven woman whose romantic obsessions and delusionscatapult her over the edge into scandal-sheet notoriety and an unimaginable life.Long before the days of Lindsay, Britney and the 24-hour news cycle, JoyceMcKinney reigned as the ensnaring femme fatale accused of sexual defiance.
