9780802135452: Once Is Not Enough (Jacqueline Susann)

Once upon a time, the entertainment industry was a world that never slept. Magazine editors, models, pop stars, and all the rest visited "vitamin doctors" to get the shots that would allow them to stay up all night and then work all day--in offices decorated with beanbag chairs and Calderesque mobiles. In this world, January Wayne goes from poor-little-rich-girl to grown-up swinger, as she searches New York and Los Angeles for a guy just like Mike Wayne, the glamorous movie producer, who also just happens to be her father.

Though often panned by critics, Susann's slightly sordid yet thoroughly fabulous novel was embraced by her fans. Once Is Not Enough became Susann's third consecutive novel to reach the number one spot on the New York Times best-seller list--the first time any author had accomplished this feat. The novel would be Susann's last great success: The year after its publication, in 1974, the author died of breast cancer.

From the Inside Flap:

Back in print, the spectacular best-seller from the author of Valley of the Dolls.

'Spectacularly successful. There are plane crashes, drug orgies, motorcycle accidents, mass rapes, attempted abortions, suicide, evil doctors and assorted other activities; and I just couldn't put the damned thing down."--Library Journal

"[Susann's] pulp poetry resonates to this day. With her formula of sex, drugs and show business, Susann didn't so much capture the tenor of her times as she did predict the Zeitgeist of ours."--Detour

Jacqueline Susann left her hometown of Philadelphia and moved to New York, where she won the Best Dressed Woman in Television Award four times. But it was the success of her blockbusters Valley of the Dolls, The Love Machine, and Once is Not Enough that transformed her into the Pucci-clad media superstar we remember today. Jacqueline Susann was married to producer Irving Mansfield. She died in 1974.
