Isn't She Great?

Overview

For Jacqueline Susann, excess was the norm. As a pop icon worthy of Warhol, she basked in Hollywood's glaring spotlight and reveled in Manhattan's glitz and glamour. But beneath the facade, Susann was tormented through the '60s and '70s by a dark secret she desperately fought to keep hidden from the world. Now, Michael Korda, her editor and the man who perhaps knew her best, explores the story of this tough, self-absorbed woman who surmounted impossible odds to become, at 47, the reigning superstar of pulp ...

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Korda narrates this selection of excerpts from his autobiography, Another Life. The producer has somewhat misleadingly titled this production Isn't She Great and slapped pictures of Bette Midler and Nathan Lane on the cover, attempting to capitalize on the recent film about Jacqueline Susann's career as an author. Indeed, Korda did serve a term as Susann's editor, an experience he relates in the first segment. However, this is not ultimately, or even mostly, about Susann; it's a story about Korda, a man who has worked with many interesting and important writers as an editor for Simon & Schuster, and concerns the changes the publishing industry has undergone in the latter half of the 20th century. Promoting this as an audiobook only about Susann sells Korda and other authors he's worked with--Joan Crawford and Graham Greene among them--short. His tales are interesting and written with a good eye for detail and humor. He is an excellent reader, and hearing the words in the voice of the author always adds to a memoir. With high production values, a fine abridgment, appropriate pauses between sections, and well-timed side breaks, this is recommended.--Adrienne Furness, Genesee Community Coll., Batavia, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
