Jacqueline Susann was an American novelist. Her most famous work is Valley of the Dolls. For decades, rumors have persisted that Susann was bisexual. The rumors began around 1945, when Susann appeared in A Lady Says Yes with Carole Landis. The two reportedly had an affair and some claim that Susann modeled the Jennifer North character in her novel, Valley of the Dolls, after Landis. According to Susann's biographer, the affair had begun when Landis bought her earrings and a fur coat.

"Mariage"

www.bijouworld.com This 1963 vintage gay magazine seems to be a prototype of future gay magazines, and for 1963, the features are surprisingly “out of the closet.” Not only does it not make much pretense to be a physical culture magazine, though there is an exercise and sport's tips section, but it includes fashion (mostly underwear of course), art, and humor features. Good condition for its age. Super collectible! www.bijouworld.com $79.95
