Prime Sucker – Harry Whittington – (Giant Books, 1954; Beacon Books, 1960)

A subruban wife-swapping novel from Whittington, and a pretty good one at that.  While nothing new is in the story, Whittington does a fine job delving into the psychology of why these bored suburbanites to commit the sin of “coveting thy neighbor’s ass.” The first sentence tells it all:

Hank sat at the table and wanted George’s wife.

Originally published as a Giant Double with Idabel Williams’ The Hussy n 1954, and then as a 1960 Beacon.
