The characters are a feminist contradiction - youth, beautiful, sexually confident women with successful careers and topmost-end wardrobes.

But ultimately their aim is to find a handsome and gentleman man who can offer them energies sex - which Krantz wrote about in illustrative detail.

"If you're going to write a good pornographic scene, you have to go into details," Krantz said the Los Angeles Times in 1990. "I don't believe in storm and thunderbolt and fireworks exploding. I think every human being want to know what's going on."

Angela Carter differentiates Krantz's books to "being sealed into a luxury shopping mall whilst being softly pelted with sweet-smelling sex manual technique".

But Krantz was frank about their popularity, if not critically acclaimed, appeal.

"I write the finest books that I knew how; I can't write any other book better than this," she once said.

The point of her books, she said, was to give women "a big bubbly shower. It's a chocolate eclair. It's the kind of novel people will love".


Krantz died from natural agents surrounded by her family, friends and her 4 dogs, a family declaration said.
