Wednesday Cover Story: The Girl on the Beach

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

A little anecdote for the day. The editor of Booksmonthly, Paul Norman, recently requested a copy of The Girl on the Beach, by Mary Nichols for review. I dutifully set about sending him one.

And, as life and its little coincidences would have it, whilst waiting for this copy to materialise in the post, he received another book: Dames, Dolls and Deliquents, by Gary Lovisi – a collection of almost 700 sexy pulp fiction covers from the 1950s and 1960s. And what should he find included within its pages?  The cover to another Girl on the Beach…

I would imagine this would be quite a different read to a Mary Nichols novel…
