General Fiction (sort of) – Robert Sabbag, Anthony Scaduto, South American Novelists, Dylan Thomas & John Kennedy Toole

Now, where was I up to?

Yes, books by authors whose name begins with S and T.

The first of these is Snow Blind by Robert Sabbag, a drug culture novel.


And Rock ‘n Roll is represented by Tony Scaduto’s biography of Mick Jagger


Mass market paperbacks of South American writers – Miguel Angel Asturias, Strong Wind, Conversations With Jorge Luis Borges by Richard Burgin and In Evil Hour by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

Here are two rather old paperbacks - a novel and stories by Dylan Thomas, The Beach At Falesa (Panther1966) and Rebecca’s Daughter & Me and My Bike (Sphere1968)

Next – Van de wetering, Vonnegut, Vidal and Wharton.
