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