Jackie Collins is a strange phenomenon that defies the
logic of literature. Though the readers know it's fluff
Ms. Collins somehow hooks you for no logical reason into a
one sitting read in which you feel totally entertained but
not sure why. The HOLLYWOOD WIVES -- THE NEW GENERATION
fits that classification as the story contains two
intriguing major subplots and three other unnecessary but
enticing minor subplots. Ms. Collins has done it again, as
her fans will savor her latest contemporary fiction. Will
the audience finally understand why we love Ms. Collins?
