Getting relaxed to read a couple of books?
All the Girls Were Willing. Alan Marshall (pseudonym of Donald E. Westlake). Millwood Publication #28, 1960. Rader cover art.
Great early Westlake sleaze about Phil Crawford, a young actor in Greenwich Village theater. He tries unsuccessfully to not become a womanizing heel.
Westlake was himself a struggling Greenwich Village actor for a brief stint in the 1950s.
“The role was theirs - if they were willing to pay the price”
