Abstract:

"Scowling much of the time, in an effort to appear older, young Legman is launched into the world of libraries, book stores and book sellers, and ghost writing. He is nineteen, and must earn a living as he can, meanwhile studying intensely all the rich fields of sexuality, erotica, and erotic folklore and bibliography. He lays the foundations for his future scholarship. We meet a wide panoply of strange characters, as well as the various young women who attracted him. This is the time of the Spanish Civil War, and World War II is looming. Personal history is recounted against the background of world history, as in Book One of Legman's Memoirs, 'I Love You, I Really Do.'--from back cover.
