Blues for a Dead Lover – John Davidson aka Charles Nuetzel (Uptown Books, 1961)

I approached this one with high hopes after reading Nuetzel’s memoir, and was going “what the fuck” by page five.

Truly one of the worst vintage sleazy books I have come across — so badly written my molars hurt just typing.  Why all the exclamation marks on every page (!!!) — looks like a preteen wrote this prose.

I even tossed this one on the ground.

Uptown was another imprint for Los Angeles-based American Art/Imperial.

  1. I have yet to make it through an Uptown. The only thing that might be worse is a Rendezvous Reader. (And I think those were just piracies/reprints of Tuxedos!)
