Jacqueline Susann
Valley of the Dolls

Valley of the Dolls is a glorious venture into escapism for readers who are looking for drama and romance, written in a soap opera style. This novel so compelling because of the three main characters, Anne--a model, Jennifer--a starlet, and Neely--a singer.  Jacqueline Susann (author) creates character portraits of these 3 girls who made it big, rags-to-riches style. In each chapter, the character’s story of success, and failure, is detailed with their experiences of love, business and addiction.  Susann's writing is entertaining and will have you constantly turning the page. Valley of the Dolls was inspired by Susann's experience as a mid-century Broadway starlet who came heart breakingly close to making it, but did not. What makes this book so intriguing is this book was written almost 50 years ago, yet the story seems so incredibly modern. I recommend this book for readers who enjoy books of the “girl power” genre.
