BARR, Cecil. Bright Pink Youth.
(Paris): The Obelisk Press, 1934. First edition. Octavo. 332 pages. Pseudonymous novel written by the Obelisk Press publisher Jack Kahane. Kahane took advantage of the fact that books published in France in English were not subject to the kind of censorship practised in Britain at the time. However, they were still subject to confiscation by British and US customs officers. This tale recounts the marital, and extra marital, adventures of Tommy Trans-Wood and his ‘charming’ wife. This is a very good copy in wrappers illustrated by by G. Goursat. Scarce.
