Praise for The Delectable Dollies (published in hardback, 2006)

‘They seduced tycoons, Kings and even the Prince of Wales with their exotic dance routines. But… the Dolly Sisters’ quest for fame and fortune had devastating consequences.’ Daily Mail

‘Forget Kylie Minogue for pure unadulterated glamour because two sisters held that crown before she shook her derriere at audiences around the World.’ Sunday Express

‘The Queens of Twenties and Thirties cafe society, with more diamante than you could shake a feather at.’ Tatler

‘A potent cocktail given due weight in Chapman’s effervescent biography.’ The Good Book Guide

‘A well-researched, informative biography.’ Gay Times

‘A captivating cocktail of Hollywood glamour, sisterly devotion and personal tragedy.’ The Bookseller

‘A labour of love…. Chapman is scrupulous in not presenting speculation as fact… By not probing too deeply, (he) is at least consonant with the period, for the Dollies inhabited a curiously innocent, pre-freudian world.’ Sunday Telegraph

‘A thoroughly researched story of the beautiful twenties twins, as remarkable for their social as their theatrical life.’ The Stage

‘Jenny and Rosie outshone everyone in exuberance and high living. If celebrity is a devalued currency these days, then they were the gold standard. But their glittering lives also reflect the potentially tragic nature of the pursuit of fame and fortune.’ Daily Mail
