Shake Him Till He Rattles - Malcolm Braly

Drifting between a very cool girl and a very warm one...A funky, nighttime love story so vivid you can taste it, hear it, feel it...


GOLD MEDAL 695
FIRST PRINTING 1964
LONDON, UK

Here is Braly's second novel. It is laid in San Francisco by night, where people, narcotics and jazz flow together and melt into the smoky blue world of North Beach by night...

"Braly has the true attributes of the novelist: he thinks honestly about people, and writes about them with an unstressed absolute realism which exposes most of the toughly 'realistic' writers as naive romantics."
-Anthony Boucher - New York Sunday Times
