Some very good Valley of the Dolls coverage here and elsewhere. I read the novel a few years ago: I don't think it's going to catch on with a modern audience, it's too negatively embedded in the judgments of its day, but it is an interesting phenomenon.

  1. I read Valley of the Dolls in high school, I think because I imagined it being more scandalous than it actually was. I can't imagine wanting to read it again today, though if it somehow appeared in front of me I'd give it a shot.
