I love this one (as I do Valley Of The Dolls). January Wayne is a great character and her 'weird' relationship with her father draws you in and makes you want to read more. I have read it many times and I always find myself analyzing January and her attraction to her father and men like her father. It's a captivating read, hard to put down for sure!

After reading Valley of the Dolls, I wanted to try this one. In my opinion it was just not nearly as good.

classic novel in the author's pantheon of pop-culture mythologies. "Once Is Not Enough" recounts the colorful life of luscious January Wayne who "can't make it with a guy because she has a thing for her glamorous celebrity dad, Mike"

Once upon a time, the entertainment industry was a world that never slept. Magazine editors, models, pop stars, and all the rest visited "vitamin doctors" to get the shots that would allow them to stay up all night and then work all day--in offices decorated with beanbag chairs and Calderesque mobiles. In this world, January Wayne goes from poor-little-rich-girl to grown-up swinger, as she searches New York and Los Angeles for a guy just like Mike Wayne, the glamorous movie producer, who also just happens to be her father.

Though often panned by critics, Susann's slightly sordid yet thoroughly fabulous novel was embraced by her fans. Once Is Not Enough became Susann's third consecutive novel to reach the number one spot on the New York Times bestseller list--the first time any author had accomplished this feat. The novel would be Susann's last great success: The year after its publication, in 1974, the author died of breast cancer.
