A feud between United States President Donald Trump and his former strategist Steve Bannon has erupted in public view.
The catalyst is a new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, by journalist Michael Wolff.
It's not out yet, but The Guardian and the New York Magazine have published some eyebrow-raising excerpts which detail 18 months with the US President and his staff.
It's worth noting that some of the figures in the book have denied the claims in the excerpts (reportedly and former deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh).
Here's some of the best bits from the excerpts published book so far:
What Bannon thinks about that Trump Tower meeting
The line that's generated the most headlines is Steve Bannon's thoughts on a Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr, Jared Kushner, campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.
Here's Bannon, according to the book:
"Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it's all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately."
At the time President Trump denied he had any knowledge of the meeting. Here's Mr Bannon's view on that:
"The chance that Don Jr did not walk these jumos up to his father's office on the twenty-sixth floor is zero."
Melania Trump's reaction on election night 2016, according to the book
Melania Trump, who had been assured by her husband that he wouldn't become president, could return to inconspicuously lunching. Losing would work out for everybody. Losing was winning.
Shortly after 8 p.m. on Election Night, when the unexpected trend — Trump might actually win — seemed confirmed, Don Jr. told a friend that his father, or DJT, as he calls him, looked as if he had seen a ghost. Melania was in tears — and not of joy.
Bannon shares his view on the Russia scandal
The book describes a dinner between Bannon and former Fox News boss Roger Ailes.
"What has he gotten himself into with the Russians?" pressed Ailes.
"Mostly," said Bannon, "he went to Russia and he thought he was going to meet Putin. But Putin couldn't give a shit about him. So he's kept trying."
Trump was considering appointing his son-in-law Jared Kushner as his chief of staff
It was Ann Coulter who finally took the president-elect aside.
"Nobody is apparently telling you this," she told him.
"But you can't. You just can't hire your children."
Ivanka has a colourful description of her father's infamous hairdo…
She often described the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate — a contained island after scalp-reduction surgery — surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the centre and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray.
The colour, she would point out to comical effect, was from a product called Just for Men — the longer it was left on, the darker it got.
Impatience resulted in Trump's orange-blond hair colour.
…and she apparently has presidential ambitions of her own
Balancing risk against reward, both Jared and Ivanka decided to accept roles in the West Wing over the advice of almost everyone they knew.
It was a joint decision by the couple, and, in some sense, a joint job.
Between themselves, the two had made an earnest deal: If sometime in the future the opportunity arose, she'd be the one to run for president.
The first woman president, Ivanka entertained, would not be Hillary Clinton; it would be Ivanka Trump.
Murdoch reportedly called Trump a 'f***ing idiot'
Wolff's book claims Mr Trump had plenty of admiration for Mr Murdoch, urging a group of guests at Trump Tower to stay and meet the media titan.
"He's one of the greats, the last of the greats," Trump said. "You have to stay to see him."
Not grasping that he was now the most powerful man in the world, Trump was still trying mightily to curry favour with a media mogul who had long disdained him as a charlatan and fool.
But that feeling doesn't sound like it was mutual. Here's Wolff's description of a phone call between the pair:
Murdoch suggested that taking a liberal approach to H-1B visas, which open America's doors to select immigrants, might be hard to square with his promises to build a wall and close the borders.
But Trump seemed unconcerned, assuring Murdoch, "We'll figure it out".
"What a f***ing idiot," said Murdoch, shrugging, as he got off the phone.
Inauguration day 'not a happy one for Trump'
Trump did not enjoy his own inauguration. He was angry that A-level stars had snubbed the event, disgruntled with the accommodations at Blair House, and visibly fighting with his wife, who seemed on the verge of tears.
Throughout the day, he wore what some around him had taken to calling his golf face: angry and pissed off, shoulders hunched, arms swinging, brow furled, lips pursed.
