Book Description:

Before Jackie Collins, Candace Bushnell, and Lena Dunham, Jacqueline Susann held the world rapt with her tales of the private passions of Hollywood starlets, high-powered industrialists, and the jet set.

Valley of the Dolls took the world by storm when it was first published fifty years ago. Never had a book been so frank about sex, drugs, and show business. It is often cited as the bestselling novel of all time.

Dolls – red or black; capsules or tablets; washed down with vodka or swallowed straight. For Anne, Neely, and Jennifer, it doesn’t matter as long as the pill bottle is within easy reach. These three beautiful women become best friends when they are young and in New York, struggling to make their names in the entertainment industry. Only when they reach the peak of their careers do they find there’s nowhere left to go but down – to the Valley of the Dolls.

About the author

Jacqueline Susann was one of the most successful writers in American publishing history. Her first novel, Valley of the Dolls, published in 1966, is one of the best-selling books of all time. When The Love Machine was published in 1969, it became an immediate #1 bestseller and held that position for five months. When Once is Not Enough was published in 1973, it also moved to the top of the best-seller list and established Jackie as the first novelist in history to have three consecutive #1 books on The New York Times Best Seller list. She was a superstar and became America’s first brand-name author. Review

Sex and drugs and shlock and more–Jacqueline Susann’s addictively entertaining trash classic about three showbiz girls clawing their way to the top and hitting bottom in New York City has it all. Though it’s inspired by Susann’s experience as a mid-century Broadway starlet who came heartbreakingly close to making it, but did not, and despite its reputation as THE roman á clef of the go-go 1960s, the novel turned out to be weirdly predictive of 1990s post-punk, post-feminist, post “riot grrrl” culture. Jackie Susann may not be a writer for the ages, but she’s still a writer for our times.

Book Review

“Decades ahead of its time . . . Mesmerizing . . . The equation of emotional dependencies with drug addiction in one comprehensive personality disorder is, if anything, more chic today than in Susann’s time; also prescient is the book’s protofeminism.”Mim Udovitch, “The Village Voice Literary Supplement”
“I couldn’t believe these weren’t real girls because I know them. Maddeningly sexy. I wish I had written it.”Helen Gurley Brown
“Magnetic . . . [Susann]’s a natural storyteller . . . Valley is the kind of book that most of its readers cannot put down.”Nora Ephron
“Jackie, it seemed, understood by instinct that her readers were ready for the raw side of love . . . for a franker sexuality and a tougher kind of story-for romance with tears and oral sex.”Michael Korda, “The New Yorker”
“One of the steamiest novels ever written.”Earl Wilson”
