Six of the best throwback beach reads

Jeffrey Robinson's new novel is Trump Tower. For The Daily Beast he tagged "his favorite throwback beach reads, those classic big summer books where big characters lived big stories," including:
The Other Side Of Midnight (1973)
by Sidney Sheldon

The lives of two very different women intertwine in the beds of the men they love: the ‘70s could never have been the ‘70s without Sydney Sheldon, at least not for most college coeds. Required reading about passion, vengeance, power, greed and sex, he captivated readers with a storytelling technique he developed in television, having first given the world The Patty Duke Show and I Dream of Jeannie. Forgiving him for that, he went on to become the seventh best-selling American writer of all time, largely because of this story.
