The Crust on Its Uppers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Those who search for brilliantly written mystery novels exchange the same few names when they meet— names unknown (except for Chandler and Hammett) to general literary readers. If you’re one of those seekers you know Derek Raymond, author of bleak yet intriguing, compellingly narrated novels of murder in England. Raymond’s forgotten first novel, The Crust on Its Uppers is a great oddity.—Puncture

Derek Raymond was born in 1931. His novels include How the Dead Live, I Was Dora Suarez, and A State of Denmark, also published by Serpent’s Tail. Derek Raymond died in 1995.

Synopsis:

Reprint of a crime classic.

About the Author
