Goodbye, Janette is a late masterpiece by Harold Robbins, Americas most commercially successful and era-defining author of pulp fiction. The creator of erotic and ferocious turbocharged narratives of the soul-stricken rich and famous, Harold Robbins was in his day a close runner- up to Shakespeare and the Bible in numbers of books sold. Today, his ability to create an unstoppable, mesmeric talesomeone famously said about him, "In Harolds books, the pages turn your fingers"pushes him to the front ranks of pop novelists as new generations discover his awesome power.
Epic and intimate, moving from the icy nighttime streets of the Nazi occupation to the decadent beaches of St. Tropez, from the showrooms of Manhattan to the runways of Paris, Goodbye, Janette is a hypnotically gripping, mythic family saga of the power of blood to bind, to oppress, and finally to set free. Full of the shocking U-turns and unexpected revelations that make Harold Robbins a master storyteller, Goodbye, Janette transports the reader to a chic, dreamlike world where everyone wants an all-access pass but the penalties for staying may be severe.
