Charting the rise of sleazy pulp fiction (and questionable nonfiction) from the 1940s onward, HIP POCKET SLEAZE examines the erotic and enduringly shocking works of an era when print was both king and kinky. Publishing houses, such as New English Library (UK), Horwitz (Australia) and Greenleaf (USA), could barely meet the demand of a public bent on skinheads, witchcraft, giant crabs, Nazis, and smut of every stripe. Reviewing the key titles, interviewing some of the authors, and profiling the cover artists and the publishers, HIP POCKET SLEAZE offers a comprehensive overview of paperback sleaze, which, by accident as much as design, has had a lasting impact on our society from the ground breaking gay and lesbian themed books, and the challenge to taboo, right through to the lucrative collector marketplace, all of which and more are covered in unflinching detail.
