Shadow of the Dolls

by Jacqueline Susann, Ray Lawrence [2001]
ASIN: 0609605852

This is a posthumous sequel to "Valley of the Dolls," based partly on notes for a new novel which Jacqueline Susann left at the time of her death. While contemplating aging, the main character, Anne Wells, plays some Joni tapes and says something like, "Joni didn't change, when her voice went from smoking too much, she just turned to painting and did what she wanted to do." If you'll admit to reading this book, will you let us know what the exact reference is?
