Happy Birthday, Jacqueline Susann! 20 August 1918 – 21 September 1974 
Five quotes from the author:
Yes, there’s one thing I do want. I want to be aware of the minutes and the seconds, and to make each one count.
I’ve got a library copy of Gone with the Wind, a quart of milk and all these cookies. Wow! What an orgy!
I don’t think any novelist should be concerned with literature.
Acting is glamour but writing is hard work, so I’m going to be an actress.
The second draft is on yellow paper, that’s when I work on characterizations. The third is pink, I work on story motivations. Then blue, that’s where I cut, cut, cut.



Susann was an American author known for her best-selling novels. Her most notable work was Valley of the Dolls, a book that broke sales records and spawned an Oscar-nominated 1967 film.
