Sixties Savages & Squares.

The Savage Kick Neil Pritchie 1962

As for Neil Pritchie, scribe for “35 Dolls Of Memphis” in the preceding post: I don’t know much, though his name pops up in various lowbrow pulps in the 1950’s, and I’ve seen (but neglected to buy, it being one of those overpriced ‘collectible’ paperbacks) his 1962 novel The Savage Kick, where badass Roy Haney and his young lover Ava peddle cut dope to the beatnik crowd and sell ‘hijacked flesh’ to squares in the early sixties hipster scene, which looks less than glamorous based on the paperback’s Stanley Zuckerberg (1919 – 1995) cover art.
