Anon [Jonathan Gash?]


Description: FIRST EDITION, pp. 191, crown 8vo, original black boards, backstrip lettered in gilt with spine slightly cocked, single tiny spot to top and fore-edge, dustjacket, near fine

Publication Details: The Bodley Head, 1959

Notes: Attributed to John Grant, who as Jonathan Gash wrote the popular Lovejoy novels - from which this purportedly first-hand account of female prostitution in London's West End is a far cry. Grant himself denies involvement, perhaps to preserve the book's air of authenticity, which runs through from the endorsement by Sir John Wolfenden on the dustjacket and the blurb to the same that contrasts this work with 'the "true confessions" so often carpentered together by sensational ghost-writers'.
