Joan Collins has been a diarist from the age of twelve, writing enthusiastically over the years. She dictated most of these entries in real time into a mini-tape recorder at the end of the day, and now she is spilling the beans - well, nearly all of them!
What you will discover was written when Joan 'felt like it' between 1989 and 2009. Whether it is an encounter with a superstar or a member of the Royal Family, or her keen and honest insights into other celebrities at dinner parties and events, Joan is honest and unapologetic.
Taking us on a dazzling tour around the globe - from exclusive restaurants in Los Angeles to the glittering beaches of St Tropez, from dinner parties in London to galas in New York City - some of the characters you will meet in these pages include Rod Stewart, Princess Margaret, Donald Trump, Michael Caine, Princess Diana, Elizabeth Taylor, Rupert Everett, Roger Moore, Shirley MacLaine, Andrew Lloyd Webber and many more. Her diaries are intimate and witty, and they pull no punches, with NO apologies to anyone mentioned in them!
A legend of the screen and stage, Dame Joan Collins is perhaps best known for playing Alexis Carrington in the globally popular television series Dynasty. She has appeared in over seventy films, hundreds of TV shows and over a dozen plays.
Joan is also a bestselling author of seventeen books and many articles and editorials, including those for the Spectator magazine. She was made a Dame in 2015 by Queen Elizabeth II for her charity work and services to drama. She and her husband, Percy Gibson, divide their time between London, Los Angeles, and the south of France.
