Publisher's Summary

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 50 years ago. Never had a book been so frank about sex, drugs and show business. It is often cited as the best-selling 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.

Critic Reviews

"About the most fun you can have without a prescription!" (Julie Burchill)

"Much imitated, but never bettered." (Daily Telegraph)

"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." (Village Voice)

"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)

Meh

Some entertaining parts, but I was surprised at how bland the characters were. Cox’s voice for Neely is painful to listen to.
