The World Is Full of Married Men, Signed Note to Ed Limato Laid In
[Signed Note Laid in, With Photos] Collins, Jackie. The World Is Full of Married Men. American Edition, Second Printing. 1968. Book is in very good condition; dust jacket is in very good minus condition—jacket shows rubbing and light fraying. Laid in is a handwritten note to Ed Limato on Jackie Collins's stationery, which reads "Dear Ed--You're the best!! Love Jackie." Accompanying that are two snapshots. In one, Limato is posed with Jackie Collins. In the other, with her sister Joan.
One might consider Jackie Collins to be the Barbara Cartland of Beverly Hills. Back in the 1960s, however, Collins was still living in the United Kingdom, and the real Barbara Cartland called this book, Collins’ first, “nasty, filthy, and disgusting.” Billed as Swinging London’s answer to Valley of the Dolls, the plot concerns an ad man who cheats on his wife with an aspiring actress/model, and the chain reaction of love affairs that occur as result.“I suppose for some people one woman or one man is enough—but not for any of the people I know.”
