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--alas!--she's still a writer for our times.
Jacqueline Susann's sensational story of three pill-popping women (whom she modeled, rumor has it, after Judy Garland, Grace Kelly, and Marilyn Monroe) perfectly crystallized the decadence of the 1960s.
