I was half way finished a Bullpen blog for tomorrow and I realized it was a SUNDAY blog and i needed to round up book reviews….SO i gotta do it all again.

Bookleggers and Smuthounds: The Trade in Erotica, 1920-1940 by Jay A. Gertzman came in the mail. Terrific looking book. Everything I ever wanted to know about the naughty book trade in america. BTW I emailed Prof Gertzman and asked him to write a guest blog for the Bullpen and he said yes. Sounds like a great guy. He also bemoans the fact that all the guys who knew anything are now dead, and all the records have been destroyed. So in essense he’s preserving a little corner of the history of the book trade people want to gloss over. Rewriting history seems to be all the rage this century.
