Donald Westlake and Elizabeth Taylor: A Note from Dave

Dave says he's been thinking about John B. Allan, Donald E. Westlake, and Elizabeth Taylor:
Elizabeth Taylor passed away a couple of weeks ago and I was reminded of a paperback original in my collection of Donald E, Westlake books. The paperback was titled Elizabeth Taylor: The Fascinating Story of America's Most Talented Actress and the World's Most Beautiful Woman and was printed in April 1961,  by Monarch Books from Derby, CT. The cover price at the time was 35 cents for 139 pages. John B. Allan was a pseudonym used by Donald E. Westlake [one of more than 20!] and copies of this paperback are difficult to obtain in fine or near fine condition.
