Featuring a brand new introduction from Alexandra Heminsley, talking about what Jackie and her books mean to her!
‘What radiates from all of her novels is a sense that women are just as capable of great things as men’ ALEXANDRA HEMINSLEY
'Jackie Collins’s daring, unapologetic stroke of the pen, combined with her glorious wit, has single-handedly given creative license to new generations of authors and storytellers.' COLLEEN HOOVER
Al King, the rock-and-roll super stud who is everything any sex-crazed groupie ever imagined her hero to be; and Dallas, the beauty queen whose sky-high ambitions stem from a sordid secret-the type that tabloids tingle to tell. Together, they're on a wild ride from London to New York, from Hollywood to Rio and the steaming jungles of the Amazon-where all their dreams and nightmares are about to come true…LOVERS & GAMBLERS
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 ‘Legend is a word used too lightly for so many undeserving people, but Jackie is the very definition of the word’ ALEX KHAN ‘What Jackie knew how to do so well, is to tell a thumping good story’ ROWAN COLEMAN ‘Here is a woman who not only wanted to entertain her readers, but also to teach them something; about the world and about themselves’ ISABELLE BROOM ‘Jackie is the queen of cliff-hangers’ SAMANTHA TONGE ‘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 MANNING ‘Collins was saying that women didn’t have to centre round men, either in books or in life’ JESSIE BURTON ‘Jackie lived the Hollywood dream, but, she looked sideways at it, and then shared the dirt with her readers’ JULIET ASHTON
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!'
