A Crooked Sixpence


The first (1961) edition of this book was pulped, and plans for a Hollywood movie scrapped when a penniless aristocrat thought he could make money by claiming to be identifiable as one of its characters. Revived in 2008 it has been described as: ‘the best novel about journalism – ever’… ‘Effectively a documentary, lightly disguised as a novel’… ‘Wonderful – the best book about British popular journalism’… And ‘the best novel never published’.
