Becky Black’s Book Swap

Paperbacks:

James Lear: The Back Passage
James Lear: The Palace of Varieties
Mary Renault: The Charioteer
V.B. Kildaire: The Desire for Dearborne
Charlie Cochrane: Lessons in Love (Only prepared to swap that as I have the whole series on Kindle instead of paper books. Love those so much.)

What to if you want any of these books

REPLY to this post with suggestions of what you have–it doesn’t matter if you’ve already had a post on the community, you can also offer your books on the replies. The owner of the post will then choose what they want (probably will take a day or so) and then I’ll connect the two of you and you can arrange your swap or gift.

  1. My copy of the Charioteer is falling apart. I’d swop my Christopher Isherwood Berlin Tales for it.

  2. I’d really like Lessons in Love. I can swap it with any of the following:

    Now and Then – A set of short stories some historical and some contemporary by GS Wiley. I’d really recommend this.
    Gravedigger by Joseph Hansen – sort of historical cos it was written/set in the 80s!
    Ice, Wind and Fire by Mel Keegan – ditto above!

  3. Charlie, I think I’d prefer posting – I’m coming by public transport so the less I have to carry the better!

  4. Palace of Varieties is the only Lear I’m missing; Amazon keeps telling me it’s unavailable after I order it.

    The first book I have to offer is ‘The Men From the Boys’ by William J. Mann, which I don’t really consider to be historical, but it takes place (and was written shortly after) 1994-1995 and has flashbacks to 10 years earlier. This isn’t really a sexy book, but is probably one of the best books I’ve ever read. I would consider the copy to be in very good to almost like new condition.

    The other book I have to offer is Fanny Hill, which isn’t technically a gay novel, but it has a lot of lesbian sex in it and was the first book to ever be banned in the US on grounds of obscenity and continues to be controversial over 250 years since its first publication. I should note that this copy was published in 1963, so while it is also in very good condition the glue of the spine has dried out a bit giving it a fragility at the very beginning of the book (first few sheets) while page- turning. I also have a Kindle version of this.

    • Gah, WordPress is being strange tonight. I hope this comes through.

      The Men from the Boys sounds interesting. This exercise is introducing me to lots of new ones I might not otherwise have encountered.
      Palace of Varieties is your! I prefer it to The Back Passage. That’s fun but Palace of Varieties is a more meaty story with much more character development.

    • Addie, I kind of forgot all about this swap. Do you want to email me your snail mail address and I’ll get Palace of Varieties sent to you – unless you’re going to be at the Milton Keynes Meet this weekend, in which case I could bring it along.
