Marilyn - Born to be a superstar. Gorgeous, gifted, adored, she is the darling of the world, and the most bitterly disappointed woman in Hollywood.
Roy - Destined to live in her luminous sister's shadow. She has the forcefulness and talent to succeed in the fashion business, and a fatal attraction to the wrong men.
Althea - Roy's best friend, whose lineage is the closest thing to royalty in America but whose private past is horrifying. Hers is a hunger that recognizes no morality.
Spning the decades from the Depression to today, moving from the film and fashion enclaves of Los Angeles to the glitter capitals of Manhattan, Mexico, Rome, Paris and London, this is a story of friendship and intimacy, of heartbreak and triumph. It tells of love lasting beyond the grave; of the reckless fever of illicit passion; and of erotic competition careening perilously toward disaster.
Rich in plot, character and opulent settings, this powerful blockbuster, by one of America's most widely read authors, can truly be said to offer readers 'Everything and More'.« less
