Brode, Anthony - To Bed on Thursday. Country Book Club, 1st thus, 1959. For the purposes of this book I have brought off a merger between not only the two weekly papers for which I worked but also two editors, two towns, two sets of councils, courts and so forth. Former colleagues who feel "it couldn't have happened here" may therefore confidently ascribe any unlikely incident to the other place and paper. General readers who believe that weekly papers are anachronisms and ipso facto amusing are warned that these chapters were written in the belief that (with two or three exceptions) real newspapers now exist solely in the provinces. Most Fleet Street editors must realise this, or they would not have changed their papers into feature magazines devoted to the upkeep of the arts or the bust. (Author's note, Summer 1957). 8¼" x 5", 172pp, light blue cloth, hardback. Name and date signature on front-free endpaper; spine sunned; good, no wrapper.
