Sparkle, Neely Sparkle
At a time when women were destined to become housewives, Jacqueline Susann let us dream. Anne, Neely, and Jennifer are ambitious young women in New York City who become best friends as they struggle to make their mark. Eventually, they climb their way to the top of the entertainment industry only to find that there's no place left to go but down, into the Valley of the Dolls.
Five decades after it was first published in 1966, Valley of the Dolls remains a pop-culture classic, a pioneering work that tackled women's rights, gay rights, drug addition, and the male literary establishment with signature flair.
This anniversary edition features a foreword by Simon Doonan and pink-tipped pages.
