Quentin Crisp | 15 comments I wonder if someone can help me with this. As his publisher, I know John Elliott personally, but hopefully I can also give whatever verification is needed for the following.

This is the author profile in question:

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

And this is his real biography (in other words, this is the John Elliott we're talking about):

"John Elliott was born in Glasgow, 1938. As well as ‘Scotland making him’, he has lived in Spain and Paris and worked as an Assistant Film Editor, a night telephonist and in the Unemployment Benefit Service.

"A persistent jazz and improvised music listener, he now resides in Twickenham."

However, most of the books under that profile are not his. The only books that should be listed on his profile are:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

What can be done about the very large number of titles there that don't belong on his profile?

Quentin Crisp | 15 comments Thank you. That's excellent. I see Another Example of Indulgence has a cover now, too. Much obliged.

Yes, found the cover on Amazon and added it.
