Summary
Attacked, damned, praised and read around the world, THE CARPETBAG- GERS was first published in 1961 and shelved high enough that the kids couldn't get their hands on it. Set in the aviation industry and Hollywood in the 1930s, it is said the lead protaganist Jonas Cord is based on Bill Lear and Howard Hughes. It is the original sex and money blockbuster: a cracking story driven relentlessly forward by the sheer power and boldness of Robbins' writing
Summary
From New York to California, from the prosperity of the aeronautics industry to the glitter and glamour of Hollywood, multimillionaire Jonas Cord and sensuous film star Rina Marlow discover a world of forbidden secrets, intrigue, ambitions, and passion
