Knights Of Arabia (Bérurier au sérail), Paperback Library, New York, 1970 (Collection Didier Poiret)
The San-Antonio series published in the early 1970’s by the Paperback Library (New York) carried a blurb text on their front page. Still, the backpage was the site of promotional superlatives too. The emphasis was put here more explicitly on sales figures than on storytelling or other literary merits. The rhetorical force of 24 Million Copies sold in France always seem to trump the hackneyed praise reproduced there, however rich in colourfoul adjectives and metaphors.
