(price-clipped) [light shelfwear, spine slightly turned; jacket shows a little handling wear, minor soiling]. "Now that the kitchen sink reigns on London stages and screens and has almost replaced the ash can on our own Broadway, now that London is wearing leather jackets and getting 'with it,' now that the Outsider is In and the Insiders Out, James Breedin has his heyday. He is one of the New Men of British culture riding the crest of the New Wave -- who write the 'working class' novels, dramatize them, compose the music, write the lyrics, highlight the squalor, and then buy shares in the show. In this novel, the Not Very Angry Young James Breedin makes his irreverent confessions to the world. Hilarious, satirical, inimitably succinct and endearingly vulgar, he spares no one the acid of his wit, least of all himself." Apparently a review copy, with a photo of the author laid in.
