“So many people seem unable to differentiate between the words shocking and dirty. Truth is often shocking. It is not dirty, life is shocking at times… it is not dirty.” I thought the above statement in the author’s forward for the Valley of the Dolls Anniversary edition, made a very good point. There was nothing that I found really dirty about this book, it was shocking and sad, but not really dirty as some have made it out to be. It was surprising to me that this book that represented a problem that occurred during the time this book was written is not as talked about even today. I am not trying to diminish the drug problems that our society faces today, but to pretend it is all so new in some way makes me question how honest we are being about the cycle of addiction and how it is not a new issue among any class or race. The book itself was very interesting and I did find myself becoming attached to the characters. It was of course very sad, but also so interesting to see the direction of these women’s life. How different they were but their desperations were all in a way linked to finding acceptance from others. I am very glad I read this book, for me it was very thought provoking and I give it 4 stars.
