Jacqueline Susanns Shadow of the Dolls

Rae Lawrence

Valley of the Dolls was sexy, shocking, and unrelenting in its revelations of the dangers facing women who dare to chase their most glamorous dreams. It shot to the top of the bestseller lists in 1966 and made Jacqueline Susann a superstar. It remains the quintessential big, blockbuster, must-read, cant-put-down bestseller.

Before her death in 1974, Susann spent many months working on a draft for a sequel that continued the stories of Anne Welles, Neely OHara, and Lyon Burke. Now, after nearly thirty years, the perfect writer has been found to turn Susanns deliciously ambitious ideas into a novel that matches the original shock for shock and thrill for thrill.

In Jacqueline Susanns Shadow of the Dolls, Rae Lawrence — herself a bestselling author — picks up the story in the late 80s and brings it right into the new century. Long a devoted Valley” girl herself, Rae has re-imagined the original characters in a contemporary reality (and adjusted their ages just a bit), exactly as Jackie would have wanted her to. And if youve never read Valley of the Dolls, no matter. Sometimes the present is even more surprising and fun when you dont remember the past.

And what a story! Neelys golden voice has brought her fame and success, but now she craves acceptance in social circles where her kind of celebrity means nothing at all. Anne, born and bred in those very circles, must choose between returning home or pursuing a fabulous television career — and the kind of passion she once knew with Lyon. And Lyon, who loses everything including Anne, looks for happiness in the most unexpected of places.

Taking us behind the closed doors of New York, East Hampton, and Los Angeles, whetting our appetites for more with a new generation of young women and men who grow up far too fast, and spicing the whole story with a generous sprinkling of sex, drugs, and cosmetic surgery, Jacqueline Susanns Shadow of the Dolls is the ultimate beach read for our time. But feel free to devour it any time of the year, wherever you are.

Its been a long time since readers had this much fun between the covers. Its time to jump back in.

Suffice to say, I ran to the bookstore the day JACQUELINE SUSANN’S SHADOW OF THE DOLLS hit the shelves. As I began reading, I promised myself that I would avoid comparing it to the original. An impossible task of course, for one cannot go through SHADOW OF THE DOLLS without making some form of thought or connection to the first novel. It is a
