A joint effort between Olympia authors Harriet Daimler (Iris Owens) and Henry Crannach (Marilyn Meeske), The Pleasure Thieves is an account of two men, burglars, who share a woman and each other, upping the ante at every turn. The book has its origins in a screenplay Meeske wrote with Terry Southern (co-author of Candy) about a jewel thief. Hollywood was years away from taking on Southern, so by injecting liberal amounts of sex, and offering a co-starring role to an 18th century woman's hairpiece, this work was born.
