In 1982, after years of working in advertising in Oklahoma, Jann Stapp took a job as the personal assistant to the world's bestselling author, Harold Robbins. Like those he portrayed in his novels, Harold Robbins lived life hard, fast, and occasionally out-of-control. He was a larger-than-life figure, and he let those around him know it. Young Jann didn't know what she was walking into--but she loved every minute of it. They were married in 1992.

Harold and Me is the chronicle of the last 15 years of Harold Robbins' life. Harold was a natural storyteller and Jann absorbed his stories with awe and admiration. Just like his characters, his life was a rollercoaster ride of pride, drama, and intensity, and Jann tells his story--and theirs--with fantastic vividness and love.

Review:

“Harold Robbins writes visually. He writes with a cinematic eye and is instantly able to convey that to his reader.” ―Ayn Rand

“Great book!! Fascinating reading about a colorful man. Harold was the king of pop fiction. About all of what he wrote, he lived! Jann was a remarkable, loving partner throughout their roller-coaster lives together.” ―Barbara Eden, award-winning actress and star of I Dream of Jeannie

“Really successful writers give their readers a world they know intimately, and Harold certainly knew his world. From his luxurious yachts in the south of France to his lavish jet-set parties, Harold was king. He was larger than life and a real charmer.” ―Jackie Collins, New York Times bestselling author of Drop Dead Beautiful
