Author information

Jacqueline Susann left her hometown of Philadelphia at eighteen and moved to New York where she acted extensively and won the Best Dressed Woman in Television award four times. But it was the success of her three blockbuster novels Valley of the Dolls, The Love Machine and Once Is Not Enough that transformed her into the Pucci-clad media superstar we remember today. Jacqueline Susann was married to producer Irving Mansfield. She died in 1974."

Review quote

"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 "
