Remembering HAROLD ROBBINS ❤️
Remembering HAROLD ROBBINS - THE STORYTELLER. He did not come up through the ranks of academics. He took the hard, romantic road. Never one to be Huff-Po, he made hard money. He wrote as he lived, lugging his electric typewriter across the world among his 14 Rolls Royces, his yachts in the Mediterranean, his international orgies, and the thieving pirates of publishing. The rock star novelist. He produced a fantastic album of Jobim music from The Adventurers with Quincy Jones. His prose never wavered. It was fast and fanged, striking deep into his readers. There was no known antidote, except the next novel. Even Pope Paul VI (the '60s - '70s Pope) read Harold Robbins. He left nearly a billion readers stranded on earth when he passed on this day, Oct. 14, 1997. Fortunately, his beloved wife, Jann Robbins, keeps his legacy alive and roaring, and his page turning books in print. Fresh. Like his writing.
