Jackie Collins

The wildly popular author Jackie Collins died this month, of breast cancer, at 77. Her most successful book (which is saying something, given her more than 30 bestsellers) was titled Hollywood Wives (1983), dubbed a “bonkbuster” by the press and featuring men and women behaving rather badly.

Collins was born in the UK but moved to LA in the 1970s.  “I write about real people in disguise,” Collins once said (indeed, actor Roger Moore hoped no one recognised him from one of her tomes). “If anything, my characters are toned down – the truth is much more bizarre.”

The Lennoxville Library has a couple of her novels in Adult Large Print, and one in Adult-French Fiction. Get more via our free interlibrary loan service.
