Race with Lust (Run for Cover) Roger Normandie (Orrie Hutt)

Originally a US production this copy states “Sole Distributors in Great Britain Ben’s Books Ltd. 49 Portland Rd. London – Reprinted by K & G Publications (Herts) Ltd. Hendon N W 1”

The book is described as much more sleazier than many books that were being prosecuted at the time, I found this description on line

“This racy novel — reprinted in paperback by Kozy as Race with Lust — is far more explicit sexually than any of his other books. S/M, rape, torture, blackmail and promiscuity are dealt with in greater detail than the usual Hitt novel, pretty bold in 1957 when in the early 1960s book much more tame were in court on obscenity charges.”

Race with Lust – Roger Normandie

Kozy Books K88 published in either 1956 or 1957 this book is bordering on vg+ (I am not sure of the quality when it was originally published) There are more copies on line of the original hard back “Run for cover” the paperback is much rarer. Price includes UK Posting – For other postal rates to more distant locations please contact me. I will apply a discount for simultaneous purchases, If I remember.

Bubu and Marie by C L Philippe


I tried to find a decent precis of this book, but think it is two books and has been published in many formats, working on the principle that the cover gives a bit of a clue and that anyone willing to pay the £10 I am asking for this book will know exactly what this is about, I have stopped searching.
