CNN reported this on the scroll she died at 77 of breast cancer. I read her books years ago, tried new ones recently but could not get into them. Her early novels are gems. Chances is fantastic. Rock Star a fun read. L.A. Connections another fun novel. An incredible career. Watching her in interviews she always seemed full of life almost larger then life like a real life Mame. Watching her interviewed with her sister Joan was always very fun to watch.
Her novels personified trashy novel genre and no one did it better then Jackie.
So go and read Chances and sequel Lucky.
