My Guy is one of the foundation stones of today's massive pop-culture magazine genre. It defined what it meant to be young in the 1980s and was a template for the hugely successful gossip mags like Heat, Closer and OK! that fly off the shelves every week. this compilation showcases the best (and a little of the worst!) of the magazines' content: photostories - featuring many stars before they were famous - including Hugh Grant, tracey Ullman, Lesley Ash, Alex Kingston and tony Hadley; pop and film-star pin ups (Sting, Simon Le Bon, George Michael etc); fashion and lifestyle articles; problem pages and hot celeb news. the Best of My Guy is an essential purchase for all those nostalgia addicts out there who want to relive their teenage years - packed with memories that will bring a huge smile to every reader's face.
