review Every Night, Josephine!
Every Night Josephine originally published in 1963 may not have nearly as much pill popping and sex as Valley of the Dolls the book that made its author a sensation But it is definitely Jacueline Susann all the way witty and full of dead on observation This book will forever be etched in my brainMy mom gave me this book when I was in 2nd grade I have very vivid memories of the book and probably remember it as being much better than it actually is because it caused a big controversy I went to grades 1 7 at Anshe Emet here in Chicago which is a Jewish parochial school I always brought my books in to school so I could read them during my free time or on the bus but when my teacher saw this book she accused me of reading smut loudly and in front of my entire class I tried to tell her that the book was about Jacueline Susann s poodle but she was having none of that and dragged me to the principleThe principle took it even worse than my teacher so they called my mother and reuested that she come to pick me up During the entire time I kept trying to tell them to look at the book for themselves to see what it was about but they were so sure that I had made off with one of my mom s smut books and that Jacueline Susann couldn t possibly write anything that wasn t smut that they wouldn t even look at itFortunately my mom let them have it when she got there Yes she HAD given it to me and yes I WAS telling them the truth about the content of the book I think the most unbelievable thing to them was that I was voraciously reading full length novels written for adults in 2nd grade I know I read a lot of mom s novels during that time along with age appropriate fair like The Hobbit LOTR Chronicles of Narnia and Piers Anthony I also read books on early Judeo Christian history Egyptian history and many natural history booksI still have sweet memories of this book Jacueline painted a very sweet portrait of her life in Manhattan with her husband and their toy poodle Josephine I doubt it s a book I would seek out as an adult but it was a great story for me at the time and I enjoyed it greatly
