Attic > The G-String Murders

by Gypsy Rose Lee

Good condition copy of the 1947 first printing of the Pocket Book paperback edition. Complete and unabridged.


"Its a lurid, witty, highly competent detective story. Ecdysiast [formal for strip- teaser] Lee's Minsky background, rich show business vocabulary, and stage door gags make her book almost a social document. She has the good sense to leave Spinoza and Proust out of it. The real Gyspy has no need of Proust -- or of ghosts. The G-String Murders builds up to a hair-raising climax." -- Time Magazine

"Burlesque is the background for the murder in Miss Lee's first mystery, and it is not too strange that the background is perfect. Recommended for readers who feel better when their eyebrows are raised." -- The New Yorker

"It's a shocker in more ways than one. You'll be straining the old diaphragm with loud, raucous laughter and reveling in the skill and address of a new and salty writer, to wit, Miss Gypsy Rose Lee. It's terrific!" -- Will Cuppy
