To my mind, one of the most insightful books ever written about relations between the sexes is The Manipulated Man (1971), by Esther Vilar (1935-), a German-Argentine writer. It’s searingly honest and laugh-out-loud funny in parts, my copy of the 2008 edition is a treasured possession.
I was intrigued to discover that – in this year, 50 years after the book’s first publication – even used copies are not available to order from Amazon UK, Waterstone’s, WH Smith or other major UK booksellers. It does not appear available to buy (at least the English-language edition) on Amazon’s other sites. I shall be asking the book’s publisher, Pinter & Martin, for an explanation (they’re not selling the book either).
