American Star: introduced by Isabelle Broom


By (author): Jackie Collins

Featuring a brand new introduction from bestselling author, Isabelle Broom, talking about what Jackie and her books mean to her! 

Here is a woman who not only wanted to entertain her readers, but also to teach them something; about the world and about themselves ISABELLE BROOM

'Jackie Collinss daring, unapologetic stroke of the pen, combined with her glorious wit, has single-handedly given creative license to new generations of authors and storytellers.' COLLEEN HOOVER

American Star is a compelling story of love, sex and murder, set against the glamorous backgrounds of New York and Hollywood.

There have been many imitators, but only ever one Jackie Collins.  With millions of her books sold around the world, and thirty-one New York Times bestsellers, she is one of the worlds top-selling novelists. From glamorous Beverly Hills bedrooms to Hollywood movie studios; from glittering rock concerts to the yachts of billionaires, Jackie chronicled the scandalous lives of the rich, famous, and infamous from the inside looking out.

About Jackie Collins

There have been many imitators but only ever one Jackie Collins. The iconic British author was called 'the definition of a class act' by Graham Norton and a 'smart talented and gorgeous woman who paved the road for many of us' by Sandra Bullock. With millions of her books sold in more than forty countries and with thirty-one international bestsellers to her credit she is one of the world's top-selling novelists. Her first novel The World Is Full of Married Men was published in 1968 and established Jackie as an author who dared to step where no other female writers had gone before. Jackie was awarded an OBE in 2013 for her services to literature and charity. When accepting the honour she said to the Queen 'Not bad for a school drop-out' a revelation capturing her belief that both passion and determination can lead to big dreams coming true. Jackie Collins lived in Beverly Hills where she had a front row seat to the lives she so accurately captured in her compulsive plotlines. She was a creative force a trailblazer for women in fiction and in her own words 'A kick-ass writer!'
