Having just noticed that the initiator of the latest "book" thread left the site taking the discussion with him, it's my turn again to revive it; being too important a topic to be dropped, imo.

Having finished "Get Carter" by Ted Lewis over the Holidays, I'll soon start with "Jack Carters Law", a prequel set in late 60s Soho.

    • You are not kidding Gary, some right crackers. The only issue is that I already buy too many records and too much clothes. If i add books to it the wife will have another breakdown ha ha
    • My wife has had that many breakdowns Chris, on account of my decades of the mod culture, that I've now joined the RAC mate ;0) 

    • Ha Ha Ha!
    • Nice one Gary, very funny indeed. I think i will use it and pass it off as my own line ha ha
    • Reading both simultaniously atm.
  • This one slipped under my radar obviously; Looks like essential read though. Anybody got this yet?

    • I like the look of this one. Looks like it could lead onto other great beat books, nice post Motown.

  • Really impressed by my holidays' read. The background story is the same you've read a dozen or so times before; but like a good christian with his gospels, I never tire of reading it time and time again: the Swinging Sixties from early jazz loving modernists to the dawn of psychedelia. A bit sceptical at first about the main character being a bit of a Little Lord Fauntleroy, I got to endear Tara Browne throughout the read so much that it's easy to see why for many of his contemporaries the Sixties ended with his untimely death.
