Cosmetic effects by Clive Sinclair( Book )
7 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cosmetic Effects is a novel about terrorism and infidelity that manages to be sitmultaneously hilarious, apocalyptic, and erotic. It tells the story of Jonah Isaacson, who lectures in film at the University of St. Albans; has a professed preference for Luis Bunuel over Meryl Streep; and is happily married to Sophie, a travel agent whose business it is to sell her clients another, if temporary reality. Then Stella, St. Alban's premier cosmetic artist, turns Jonah on to powered rhinoceros horn--not only the greatest aphrodisiac he's ever had, but something that shatters the framework of his own reality so much that he will never, ever be the same
Hearts of gold by Clive Sinclair( Book )
12 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tales of America, adultery, football, incest, love, paranoia, sadism and Zionism ... Wickedly funny these stories may be, but heartless they are not. Disturbing images abound; like the loving family that feasts upon living butterflies; and other images that connect the themes with places deeper than the mind. The narrators are an extraordinary group: a berserk psychiatrist, a giraffe, a man with an invisible creature on his back, a Jewish private eye, a communist with a bowel fixation, and various other disillusioned souls. None the less, each story is lucid, concisely written and has a

Meet the wife by Clive Sinclair( Book )
5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Meet the Wife is a book of metamorphoses, of journeys that o'erleap all frontiers, most especially that between life and death, of contemporary adventures that suddenly assume mythic proportions." "Accept Clive Sinclair's invitation and you will embark upon an expedition led by none other than Odysseus, still desperately seeking Penelope. His reluctant amanuensis is a fat reporter called Pumpkin, who is transformed from a dictator's lapdog into a Homeric bard, one who literally writes out of his skin." "Accept this invitation and you will also cross paths with the Lone Ranger, and Wyatt Earp, the most famous lawman of them all. And meet the latter's voluptuous wife, whose portrait overleaf may or may not be a true likeness. Mrs. Earp also happens to be the double of someone's else missing spouse, a coincidence that raises deadly questions about identity. And not only about identity. In the world you are about to enter, where no surface remains static for long, you'll never be sure whether to laugh or cry for help."--BOOK JACKET
Clive Sinclair's true tales of the Wild West by Clive Sinclair( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Was Wyatt Earp a model lawman, or a stone-cold killer? Was General Custer a brilliant strategist who had a bad day, or a glory-hunting asshole? Were the rumours true? Was Wild Bill Hickok more of a man's lady than a ladies' man? Was Billy the Kid gay? Was Calamity Jane a feminist, or a tart? Were Geronimo, Cochise, Crazy Horse, and Sitting Bull freedom fighters, or terrorists? Can anyone separate truth from legend, fact from fiction? In order to fully capture the extravagance of these people and the landscapes they inhabit, Clive Sinclair has been driven to invent a new genre. He calls it Dodgy Realism, a melange of fact, fantasy, and fiction. Call it what you will, his new book is both an erudite investigation of, and a glorious romp through, the heartland of America
