One of Katie Agnew's favourite books. The Queen of Glitz comes up trumps – she brings Lucky Santangelo back with a fistful of problems, both emotional and lethal. Jackie Collins no longer produces just glitz-filled glamour of old but has dished up a tale with real tension and drama. It is glorious stuff. Comparison: Louise Bagshawe, Candace Bushnell, Tasmina Perry. November 2009 Guest Editor Katie Agnew on JACKIE COLLINS My absolute heroine! When I grow up I want to be Jackie Collins. Snobs may mock, but the woman is a literary genius. When I finished my English MA I was so tired of reading heavy, thought-provoking tombs. I'd just read all 643 page of Ulysses, and much as I'd appreciated Modernism, I needed a fix of Bonkbuster. Fast! I spent the summer after my Finals devouring every book she'd ever written and I've been an avid fan ever since. No irony. For me, she's right up there with Dickens and Austen. That's why Jackie has sold more than 400 million books!
Jackie is the Queen of the Hollywood glitz novel, so popular a decade ago but then tastes changed and the genre went out of fashion, so professional Jackie changed too. She still portrays ultra-rich, glitz lives of power and decadence, but now adds murder … Good move Jackie.Similar this month: None.Comparison: Sidney Sheldon, Candace Bushnell, Louise Bagshawe.

Everybody wanted to go to bed with Tony Guiseppi, it had been that way since seventh grade. And not only females, males felt that way too - they were always coming onto him, eyeing him appreciatively, inviting him to a ball game, lunch or a night on the town. Anything he wanted in fact. In fact, he wanted nothing. Tony Guiseppi had learned at an early age that looks were only the package. He knew he was exceptionally good looking. It did not impress him. Tony Guiseppi was half Italian (his father, Roberto, was a crotch-stroking, drunken native of Naples, who came to America in 1972 for a vacation and stayed), and half American (his mother, Ruth, would have been a Jewish princess if only her family had possessed money). As it was she was a waitress when his father came upon her - literally. They were married exactly one month before Tony entered the world.
