From Michael de Freitas to Michael X.

London: André Deutsch, 1968. First edition. 8vo. 207pp. Dw. photographs of Michael Abdul Malik by Horace Ové.

A bildungsroman ghosted by John Stevenson, aka Marcus van Heller, erstwhile Olympia Press author and business manager for Alexander Trocchi's Merlin magazine. The book was published in Spring 1968, but since Malik was in prison (the first person convicted under the Race Relations Act) it received little publicity and, apart from Colin MacInnes in the New Statesman, few positive reviews.

Very Good plus in slightly rubbed and edge-worn dw., with red title lettering to spine slightly faded.
