Ryan Comments: …and no one has any pants, apparently.

Published 1970

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 7.80 out of 10)

    “Oh no – Heathrow closed again!”

  2. JuanPaul Says:

    White suburban insects, that is. All the guy is missing is a cup of coffee in his hand.

  3. fred Says:

    In this future ‘Get Carter’ would probably set off Britain’s white exploitation film genre.

  4. Bibliomancer Says:

    I heard the whites were all abuzz about this book.

  5. THX 1139 Says:

    Well, this doesn’t seem so bad… *reads blurb* Ah, OK, I see… no.

  6. Francis Boyle Says:

    I wasn’t at Gatwick on The Day of the Drones* but yes, I suspect this is pretty much what the departure lounge looked like after the first few hours.

    *Yeah I know it was actually three days but the novelisation condenses it to one for dramatic effect.

    Seems that white guy is at a disadvantage … on RuPaul’s Drag Race!

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Toxic sequel to the toxic Turner Diaries.

  9. Tat Wood Says:

    Normally I’d make a Boris Johnson joke but it’s just too depressing today.

  10. fred Says:

    Wonder how many times Trump has read this.

  11. Anna T. Says:

    I think there’s something wonky with her arm.

    And, reading that blurb… this sounds bad.

  12. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Bet this book generated a lot of buzz when it first came out.

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tat: I thought of Boris too, but the hair’s entirely too kempt.

    Terrible art for a no-doubt terrible book.

    @Bruce: hee.

  14. Tat Wood Says:

    @GSSxN: He’s perfectly capable of looking kempt – just not when there’s a camera around.

    I was also tjhinking ‘drones’ as in the club of ghastly posh boys in PG Wodehouse.

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tat: “Ghastly posh boys” is Boris, all right.
    (Been too long since I read Wodehouse)

  16. Tracy Says:

    Is she doing some wild dance? Or trying to slap away all the flying bees?

  17. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    I think the guy in the background is wanking off…which explains the swooning pose of the lady in the front.

  18. A. R. Yngve Says:

    The blurb is “sus” and “cringe,” as the kids say.
