About this deal

I found this battered novel in the basement of Black Squirrel Books in Ottawa, ON, buried in a pile of old, orange Penguin paperbacks (if you ever see a pile of old, orange Penguin paperbacks, do not walk away from them.

Several months later Hondorp and Hendricks begin to receive random, intermittent postcards from Golk, which both pique curiosity and guilt. Interlarded in the romance of Hondorp and Hendricks are a couple of scenes of Golk on the skids, unsure of where he might go and what he might do, initially resentful and upset, then resigned.Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. Golk himself, about whom so many in this novel revolve, is the mastermind behind the hidden camera expose, which he uses to entrap people into behaving naturally in slightly extraordinary circumstances.

The concept has its extra-novel correlate in Alan Funt’s Candid Camera, a radio, then television show, which in several incarnations, prevailed on television for forty years, now displaced by the likes of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” and the plethora of youtube offerings.

In midcentury America, the golden age of television, a man named Golk is wreaking havoc with the medium. There are shades of “The Great Gatsby” here—Holdorp as Nick and Golk as Gatsby—and the conclusions of each have the same wistful desperation.

The more combative the personality, the better the joke, and to help trap his victims Golk enlists a team of misfits, including Herbert Hondorp, a scholarly layabout turned photogenic decoy, and Jeanine Hendricks, a 23-year-old debutante with a bitter worldview. I took it to the counter along with my other unloved discoveries and the cashier was momentarily flummoxed over what to charge me.
