‘These diaries are like their author – fabulously entertaining, impossibly glamorous, and utterly irresistible’ Piers Morgan

What a treat to delve into Joan Collins’ diaries; a treat from start to finish’ Elizabeth Hurley

These are Dame Joan Collins’ ‘uncensored diaries’. Often outrageous, the entries were almost written entirely in real time. Most were done within ten hours of the events Joan describes, and many are hilarious. Whether it is an encounter with a member of the Royal Family, or her keen and honest insights of other celebrities at parties or dinners, Joan doesn’t care. She’s Unapologetic!

The diaries are intimate and funny, as readers of her column for the Spectator will recognise. It has been eight years since Joan’s last non-fiction book, and what could be more fun than opening her diaries, which are as scandalous as Andy Warhol’s, and pull no punches – for example, on Donald Trump: “That ungallant schmuck has written something horrible about me in the New York Post saying: ‘The last thing I would want to do in real life or on television is to be your lover.’ What a gentleman!”

‘Wonderfully rich and mesmerising’ William Boyd

‘As brutal, withering and funny as you’d expect’ Julian Clary

Reviews

These diaries are like their author - fabulously entertaining, impossibly glamorous, and utterly irresistible
Piers Morgan
A wonderfully rich and mesmerising diary. Full of insight and revelation
William Boyd
A fascinating glimpse into a fabulous life. Dame Joan's private thoughts are as brutal, withering and funny as you'd expect
Julian Clary
Combative and gloriously indiscreet, Dame Joan Collins leaves a trail of walking wounded in her wake with her waspish observations of Hollywood, theatre land and monarchy. It's why she is showbusiness royalty
Andrew Pierce
What a treat to delve into Joan Collins' diaries; a treat from start to finish
Elizabeth Hurley
Unapologetic to say the least. Alexis Carrington hasn't got anything on Dame Joan
