The newest Jackie Collins novel, Poor Little Bitch Girl is all the sex, sizzle and intrigue expected from the famed author, but she has made some changes her readers will be surprised by.
Some of the story is told in a narrative, other parts are first person from the character Denver, who is about as ballsy as any number of her strong and successful women of the past.
And like any good Jackie Collins story, the cover of the book is equally important. Take a close look and you’ll see a woman’s mouth…wide open…preparing to eat something off her finger. It’s racy, but Collins laughs when asked about it. She claims her publishers were concerned that fans might misconstrue the intention. We say isn’t that the point? The mysterious treat? A finger-full of caviar, which Collins says is meant to be suggestive, but nothing we wouldn’t be happy to shove in our mouths.
The characters have fantastic names as in all the her stories, but the title is calculated as well, which in this case is an offshoot from a television series she was working on entitled Poor Little Rich Girls. Once she chose that name, it stuck.
And Jackie Collins fans, rejoice! We could very well see a movie about this latest adventure. In fact, she’s currently producing the film Paris Connection featuring one of her more popular characters, Madison Castelli, starring Trudy Styler (Sting’s wife).
In the past Hollywood hasn’t quite captured the steam of her books, but Collins hasn’t given up on movie versions of her stories. Now she just produces them herself to keep the integrity. However, Collins is convinced that Quentin Tarrantino could make her characters smolder on the screen.
