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

Special Edition: To Have and to Hoax




We had the opportunity to try something new - we were asked if we'd like to interview debut author Martha Waters about her book To Have and to Hoax, you know, back then when the world was young and we were allowed to leave our houses.  Martha was really nice and we feel really bad that all her fun book release party stuff got cancelled - however, she's doing a virtual launch Tuesday April 7th on Instagram at 7 PM EST so maybe go join her there.

To Have and to Hoax is a Publisher's Weekly starred Regency romantic comedy about... well, about somebody who fakes contracting a fatal respiratory disease so, like, timely!  This is a great time to support your local bookstore, so we've linked to Martha's local Chapel Hill bookstore Flyleaf (where her party was supposed to take place) if you'd like to buy a copy.  Looks like they're doing $1 media mail shipping if you spend $25!
