RARA-AVIS: Charles Willeford's Pick-Up

Here's a weird twist to Willeford's _Pick-Up_ that I just finished reading. It was bought by Beacon Books in 1954, the pb line that published his 2nd novel
_High Priest of California_ after it had been REJECTED by Gold Medal.

Anyway, _Pick-Up_ was a reading treat. The humor is deadpan and rich. I remember reading Willeford's Hoke Mosley title (_The Way We Die Now_) where the protag takes out his false teeth to go on an undercover assignment. Only time I've run across that.
