Sinning on the City’s Edge

Love in Suburbia, 1964. Illustration by Raymond Johnson.

Well, I’ve done it again, folks. So pleased was I with last week’s expansion of my summertime book covers gallery, that I decided to update and add to another post from around that same time. In May 2009, I cobbled together an assortment of “suburban sin fiction” fronts from the mid-20th century, which included works such as Adultery in Suburbia, Sexurbia County, Split-Level Love, and Shopping Center Sex. In the years since, however, I’ve found many more examples of that genre, and have now added to my gallery--boosting the number of paperbacks on display from 16 to a whopping 76.
