In the event all I bought were three Penguins from the 60s, largely because I like the design. Here's the first:
Next is a book by one of those novelists who's always described as unfairly neglected.
Finally, Jack Trevor Story, a writer who was absurdly prolific in his day, but the brevity of that Wikipedia entry shows how transient his fame has been.
You're bound to laugh at the clipped and bawdy dialogue of this social merry-go-round. But you'll also wince at the cutting edge of this brilliant writing.Penguin could see it was on the edge of something different, but didn't quite know what to make of it.
I'm very pleased with these slim pickings, though. They were very cheap.
