Omigosh, OK. Here’s some you can only find in thrift shops, and you’ll have to look hard:
Anything by Tiffany Thayer (13 Women, 13 Men, Call Her Savage, etc.). He wrote great tawdry potboilers in the early '30s. Makes James M. Cain look like a Sunday-school boy.
Sorrows of a Showgirl (1908). Hilarious “diary” of a cheap NY showgirl.
Anything by J.P. McEvoy (Show Girl, Hollywood Girl, Society). He wrote about a Lorelei Lee-type character named Dixie Dugan. A scream!
Vile Bodies, by Evelyn Waugh. My fave Waugh book–funny and creepy at the same time.
Milt Gross. An aquired taste–Yiddish immigrant humor, with cartoons. You’ll either love it or hate it.
Patrick Dennis’ Little Me. A total hoot.
