Author of such torrid titles as Drop Dead Beautiful and Misfortune's Daughters,
one of the most celebrated television stars of the 1980s, feminist, gay icon?Joan Collins has playing many roles, and has earned her place as a true icon of the last 50 years. This revelatory and affectionate biography covers the many unmemorable or memorably awful movies?such as The Stud and The Bitch based on her sister Jackie's the novels, her notorious role as Alexis Carrington making her the highest paid woman on television at the time and anchoring her place as the camp villainness of the decade, as well as her many stage roles. But these do not begin to explain the extent of her fame?the men in her life, and her marriages, make headlines as well, such as her current husband, 33 years her junior. Even as she approaches 75, she remains indefatigable and irresistible. This fascinating and revealing biography will show how she has become such a popular figure and remained a sex symbol to so many for such a long time.
