Street Books - Valley of the Dolls Jacqueline Susann

Found - Coat check in Atlantic City
Picked up because - Wanted to read again
Vally of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann was a instant hit. Her tale of three friends brought together by life in 1940's New York City, was a sensation in 1966. Even now one can find it in every book store, or when getting coats from a casino in Atlantic City. This book is worth reading a second time. This is hard because when you lend it out to people it never comes back. That's what happens with really good books, they come in and out of your life. New York.. if you can make it there you can make it anywhere.. hard to say why this rings true. People come to New York to catch a dream. Each of Jacqueline's woman has a dream to achieve, each one has heart to break, and each find help in the "Dolls." Those beautiful little helpers that keep everything on track. This story is set when women were on the verge of liberation. It has all the dangers that have to be over come to make it on your own. Read it and then pass it on, its that good.
