Episode 45 - Lucky by Jackie Collins

So. Wow. This book. Lucky Santangelo is a boss businesslady who Has Sex.  A whole lot happens in this book - everybody gets married six times, at least one hotel is opened, dirty deeds are done on yachts....  I honestly do not know how I could possibly describe the plot.  I can  tell you that if you are sensitive to literally any content whatsoever you should not read this book because it has it all .  Child brides!  Rape!  Child rape!  Gratuitous dead babies!  Everybody has sex with everybody else's dad!  Racism!  Fat shaming! The idle rich!   Just say no to drugs, kids ! This is one of those books that has a super boring US cover - you can tell looking at the front that the back just has a picture of the author and "fiftyeleven bazillion copies sold!", that it's about rich people, and that if you want to read it you already know about it. BUT there are also some international covers that I know you are very interested in .  All of which are frankly more descriptive

I think, like, a lot of people have gone there before.



Before there was Chris Pine's dick in a Robert the Bruce movie, there was Shatner getting shirtless all over the place and introducing the world to the ancient martial art of "duck real slow and then do that thing with your one fist on top of the other one".  I'd make a joke about Kirk fucking green ladies, but as a real Trekkie I know damned well that Kirk was, in fact, married to his ship and never fucked any green ladies at all, although he did definitely do it with three or four non-green ladies during the run of TOS.

I love Star Trek and I love vintage romance novels and I can absolutely admit that they share a lot in terms of plot structure, heavy handed dialogue, and seriously silly costumes, although romance novels only wish they had an Uhura.  Also, McCoy and Spock are a totally classic romance novel couple and eventually dear god I hope they finally got to bang it out and quit bitching at each other.

PS - by the way, we are TOTALLY podcasting about Imzadi one of these days.

    1. I read it unironically in high school; I think Courtney is mostly a Trek virgin. It's gonna be White Nonsense In Spaaaaaaace!
