"Under Krantz's fingers, real life has a way of becoming mysterious, glamorous, legendary, sequined."--Vogue.
From the Publisher
Scruples is the novel that created publishing history, the first-and widely acknowledged to be the very best-novel ever written about the staggeringly luxurious life of a Beverly Hills boutique and the people who work in it. Scruples was translated into twenty languages and made Rodeo Drive famous around the world. The New York Post said that "Scruples was born to be a smash bestseller. . . It has more inside information about the worlds of high fashion and Hollywood than you'd find in a dozen manuals." With Scruples, Judith Krantz earned her reputation as a blazingly talented and original storyteller. she takes her readers behind the scenes of wealthy and fame to show them the real people and the real emotions that exist at the core of even the most high-powered lives. Scruples is the leader of her #1 best-selling novels.
"Judith Krantz writes with obvious authority."--John Barkham Reviews

I just happened to run across this review that I wrote way back in 1997. I recently downloaded the Kindle version in a fit of nostalgia, and re-read it for the first time in at least 10 years. I still enjoyed it, but it does seem a lot more dated now. It is very much a product of its time, the mid to late 1970s (the original publication date is 1978).Read more ›
Judith Krantz novels are pure, unadulterated slutty fun. The poor transcription takes away frm that fun.
Reading this book again as an adult living in a different era, I can see some definite virtues and some flaws that would have gone by me at age 16. The first part of the book focuses on Wilhelmina "Billie" Winthrop and her transformation from obese teenage ugly duckling to sexy French-speaking fashion plate, eventually culminating in a marriage to her rich boss and then, after his death (and many affairs), to a movie producer. This tale, especially the story of Billie's early years in Paris and New York, is probably the most fun part of the book.Read more ›
