Featuring a brand new introduction from author, Tom Rasmussen, talking about what Jackie and her books mean to them!
‘She writes the Grey Area with conviction: not damning anyone for being bad or deifying anyone for being good, but revealing every single person’s deeply flawed inner monologues’ TOM RASMUSSEN
Friends from high school in Beverly Hills, Denver Jones, Carolyn Henderson, Annabelle Maestro and Bobby Santangelo Stanislopoulos are now building their careers in glamorous cities. When Annabelle's movie star mother is found murdered at home, the old friends are thrown back together. And secrets from the past have a way of coming back to haunt them . . .
There have been many imitators, but only ever one Jackie Collins. With millions of her books sold around the world, and thirty-one New York Times bestsellers, she is one of the world’s top-selling novelists. From glamorous Beverly Hills bedrooms to Hollywood movie studios; from glittering rock concerts to the yachts of billionaires, Jackie chronicled the scandalous lives of the rich, famous, and infamous from the inside looking out.
'A true inspiration, a trail blazer for women's fiction' JILLY COOPER ‘Jackie shows us all what being a strong, successful woman means at any age’ MILLY JOHNSON ‘Jackie will never be forgotten, she’ll always inspire me to #BeMoreJackie’ JILL MANSELL ‘Jackie’s heroines don’t take off their clothes to please a man, but to please themselves’ CLARE MACKINTOSH ‘Jackie wrote with shameless ambition, ruthless passion and pure diamond-dusted sparkle’ CATHERINE STEADMAN ‘Lessons galore on every page… about feminism, equality, tolerance and love’ CARMEL HARRINGTON ‘For all her trademark sass, there is a moralist at work here’ LOUISE CANDLISH ‘Nobody does it quite like Jackie and nobody ever will’ SARRA MANING ‘Jackie wrote about Hollywood with total authenticity, breaking all the rules and taboos’ BARBARA TAYLOR BRADFORD ‘Collins was saying that women didn’t have to centre round men, either in books or in life’ JESSIE BURTON ‘What radiates from her novels, is a sense that women are capable of great things’ ALEXANDRA HEMINSLEY
There have been many imitators but only ever one Jackie Collins. The iconic British author was called 'the definition of a class act' by Graham Norton and a 'smart, talented and gorgeous woman who paved the road for many of us' by Sandra Bullock. With millions of her books sold in more than forty countries, and with thirty-one international bestsellers to her credit, she is one of the world's top-selling novelists. Her first novel, The World Is Full of Married Men, was published in 1968 and established Jackie as an author who dared to step where no other female writers had gone before. Jackie was awarded an OBE in 2013 for her services to literature and charity. When accepting the honour she said to the Queen, 'Not bad for a school drop-out' – a revelation capturing her belief that both passion and determination can lead to big dreams coming true. Jackie Collins lived in Beverly Hills where she had a front row seat to the lives she so accurately captured in her compulsive plotlines. She was a creative force, a trailblazer for women in fiction and, in her own words, 'A kick-ass writer!'
