I've been searching everywhere for a novel called Hawaian Paradise that has apparently been banned, at least in Mexico, but I can't find any mention of it on the web, either. People I know have read it, so it does exist, but I can't find it. May I hijack this thread to ask that someone help me?

I started here but was hoping to find a brand new copy. I will get from here if nothing else comes up.

I also had a look at bookmooch and as I have no books to give away, am unable to "mooch" it. Thanks all for looking for me.

Have you tried asking in a bookshop? I just did a quick search on the Waterstones website, and it shows as not in stock anywhere, but I bet if you went and asked they'd find it for you (assuming it's still in print).

Thanks Jimmy. I'm going to try that too. I assume the bigger stores like Waterstones rather than WH Smiths. I'm sure they would have some sort of secret supply!

What about trying www.abebooks.com? They'll give you information about bookstores worldwide carrying what you're looking for...

Good luck.

If you're in or near London, try Foyles in the Charing Cross Road. They don't quite have everything, but theyre close!

I have it. I adored John. Did you try Canada? I don't recall having a hard time getting my hands on a copy?

Found it:
