Paperback 896: Novel Library 2 (1st ptg, 1948)

Title: Ecstasy Girl
Author: Jack Woodford
Cover artist: Uncredited

Estimated value: ~$25

Best things about this cover:
  • My armpits bring all the boys to the yard!
  • Is that a cut-out or some kind of avant-garde necktie?
  • "I'm hung down to here, baby." "Oh, Brad..."
  • His hands are alarmingly tiny.

Best things about this back cover:
  • I have decided that Handsome Gail Tanner's first name is Handsome so please don't tell me different.
  • "Dropped an anatomic bomb!" That sounds both fun and grotesque.
  • Ladies: if your earl does not provoke swoons, keep walking.

"Now, please, Miss Carter, please, don't excite yourself further." The station manager backed hastily away.

It's hard to back away hastily. You so often smash into things. Miss Carter's autoerotic adventures must have been truly startling.
