Jackie Collins' 6 best books

Author and former-actor Jackie Collins named a six best books list for The Week magazine.

One title on the list:
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Jay Gatsby—the definitive hero. Mysterious, rich, sly, handsome, cool. This is a book I try to reread quite often. It’s beautifully written, and the characters of Jay and Daisy stay with you.
Read about another book on Collins' list.

The Great Gatsby appears among Kate Atkinson's top ten novels, Garrett Peck's best books about Prohibition, Robert McCrum's top ten books for Obama officials, and John Krasinski's six best books, and is on the American Book Review's list of the 100 best last lines from novels.
