Matt Weston (mattweston) | 29 comments Hi,

Can you please create a new edition of this book? All of the details are below:

Title: A Fairy Tale of New York
Author name: J.P. Donleavy
ISBN: 0140039643
Publisher: Penguin Books
Publication date: 1975
Format: Paperback
The only description on the book itself is a series of quotes:

'Fantastically inventive ... madly funny. He is an original and almost irresistible writer' - Sunday Times

'Cornelius Christian is J.P. Donleavy's new hero, person, protagonist, figure-head, creature. He struts and weaves and shrugs and punches his way through the pages of A Fairy Tale of New York. I think he is Mr Donleavy's best piece of man-making since Sebastian Dangerfield in the good old ginger days. The book is fast, funny and addictive' - Robert Nye in the Guardian

'Irony, farce, satire and lyric' - Spectator

Cover art is here:

Thanks so much!

As we don't add quotes into the description, I've just allowed the book to take the default description.
