Today’s Guest: Jackie Collins, novelist, Poor Little Bitch Girl
Thinly veiled portraits of Hollywood celebrities?
Breathless, page-turning details?
JACKIE COLLINS podcast excerpt: “When I was just starting off, I was in New York being interviewed by this journalist. We were in a private room. I had a very provocative book then, The World is Full of Married Men. It was my first book. I got up to leave the room after the interview was over and he got up behind me and he pinched me on the ass! I turned right around and I thought, ‘I want this to be a good article! I don’t want to get mad at him!’ So I did the only thing I could think of, and I pinched him right back on his ass!”
That confirms it: Poor Little Bitch Girl is definitely a Jackie Collins novel. Not that I ever doubted it; when I was a teen in the ‘70s, Mom read plenty of Collins and Harold Robbins novels, so I’d know their work anywhere. And I kept picking up her work from time to time while in college in the early ‘80s.
So this is a real treat for me—and for Mom, who’s out there listening right now.
