The Relatively Constant Copywriter

By Hoyle, Trevor

Manchester, England: Northern Writers [Private Press], 1972. This copy is signed and warmly inscribed by the author on the half-title page - with a review slip laid in.

We've heard all the excuses, for example: "How do we market it?" and "There's only a limited audience for this sort of thing." I suggest that a dozen limited audiences - one for each way of reading this maddening work - add up to a substantial audience! 142 pages, plus i-x: "Notes for a Novel - The Copywriter", dated 9/1/67. (Additionally, an amber slip of reviews is laid in.) CONDITION: The book itself is bright, tight, square, unmarked, and uncreased, with negligible shelf-wear.
