Joan Collins has been a diarist from the age of twelve, writing enthusiastically over the years. She dictated most of these entries in real time into a mini-tape recorder at the end of the day, and now she is spilling the beans - well, nearly all of them. What you will discover was written when Joan 'felt like it' between 1989 and 2009. Whether it is an encounter with a superstar or a member of the Royal Family, or her keen and honest insights into other celebrities at dinner parties and events, Joan is honest and unapologetic.

Taking us on a dazzling tour around the globe - from exclusive restaurants in Los Angeles to the glittering beaches of St Tropez, from dinner parties in London to galas in New York City - some of the characters you will meet in these pages include Rod Stewart, Princess Margaret, Donald Trump, Michael Caine, Princess Diana, Elizabeth Taylor, Rupert Everett, Roger Moore, Shirley MacLaine, Andrew Lloyd Webber and many more. Her diaries are intimate and witty, and they pull no punches, with NO apologies to anyone mentioned in them!

Reviews

Outrageously wonderful . . . hilarious . . . it is nice to read a book where someone truly enjoys being themselves. She has promised us 'unapologetic' but woo-eee, it is savage. -- Camilla Long * The Sunday Times *
These diaries are like their author - fabulously entertaining, impossibly glamorous, and utterly irresistible -- Piers Morgan
Even with a life as packed as this, can there be anything left to say? Plenty, it turns out, and with great style and an enormous dash of acid. This is a book to read while sipping a stiff drink, ideally with a gorgeous companion on hand to whom you can read out the choicest bits. She puts on a hell of a show * The Times *
A fascinating glimpse into a fabulous life. Dame Joan's private thoughts are as brutal, withering and funny as you'd expect -- Julian Clary
The inimitable Dame Joan shares her views on the world and her showbiz chums without deference to political correctness * Daily Telegraph *
From encounters with the Royal Family to experiences at star-studded parties, this is a book packed with insight and fun * Red *
A wonderfully rich and mesmerising diary. Full of insight and revelation -- William Boyd
These diary entries are brilliantly candid, with name-dropping aplenty. A rollicking read, packed with wit and old-school glamour * Sunday Telegraph - Stella Magazine *
Unapologetic to say the least. Alexis Carrington hasn't got anything on Dame Joan -- Tracey Emin CBE RA
Combative and gloriously indiscreet, Dame Joan Collins leaves a trail of walking wounded in her wake with her waspish observations of Hollywood, theatre-land and monarchy. It's why she is showbusiness royalty -- Andrew Pierce
What a treat to delve into Joan Collins's diaries; a treat from start to finish -- Elizabeth Hurley
