Response to Siwsan (Reply #31)

34. It reminds me of something Jacqueline Susann said about fellow author Philip Roth.

They were contemporaries in the best-seller fiction world back in the 60s and 70s. He wrote “Portnoy’s Complaint” (whose protagonist reveled in his discovery of - shall we say “self-pleasurement”). It was a huge hit and became a movie.

Susann was also a successful author of the sex-and-drugs hit novel “Valley of the Dolls” that also spawned a hit movie. She was asked about her friendly competitor and said she would be happy to meet him, but added “I just wouldn’t want to shake hands with him”!
