Mason Hoffenberg

"Hoff"' is well-remembered in Niles Southern's THE CANDY MEN (see below) as Terry Southern's old best friend and collaborator (on CANDY), and a Bohemian poet family man writing in Paris in the 50s.  A victim of his own charming excesses, "Hoff" kept cracking the jokes as he slipped deeper into drug and alcohol abuse as the decades went by.  He continued to write books after CANDY and his writing is consistently witty and charming.  After leaving Paris many years too late, he emerged as the Woodstock roommate and drinking partner of Richard Manuel of THE BAND and finally ended up holding court to a new breed of party man on college campi in Los Angeles in the years preceding his demise in 1986.


New titles will be added as they become available.

How to order

This is a self-made website by little old me, and while it might be big, it is not sophisticated.  The little buy icon icon takes you to a generic order form where you can type in the author, title, price, and indicate whether you would like to send me a check, money order or credit card payment.  I will confirm availability via e-mail, and once I've received payment, I'll ship the book.  It's that easy.  If you have questions,  please don't hesitate to ask  via email.

Condition Grades

There's a standard bookseller vocabulary, with terms like Fine, Very Good, Good and Poor to assess condition (to see these terms defined, click on the link above).  Most of my books are in Very Good or better condition, and I tend to overemphasize their flaws so that any surprise is a pleasant one.  Feel free to ask questions, and if the book isn't in the condition described, you may return it for a full refund. 

Wants Lists

If I don't have the book you seek in stock, I will retain your book search in my wants files and email you when I do have a copy for sale. If you don't hear back from me immediately, that probably means I don't have a copy right now.  But fear not,  I keep extensive files and never stop looking....  so send me your request;  you've got nothing to lose!
