Jacqueline Susann’s groundbreaking first novel Valley of the Dolls — which was adapted as a film in 1967 — is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

When the book debuted in 1966, it sold four million copies in its first week and 6.8 million copies in the first six months, according to publisher Grove Atlantic. Since then, the novel has sold more than 31 million copies and is offered in 30 foreign editions, joining the ranks of To Kill a Mockingbird and Gone With the Wind as timeless best-sellers.

On July 4, the publisher will release a limited-edition Valley of the Dolls hardback ($27) and paperback edition ($16) with a forward by Simon Doonan.
