Yellow Pages updates JR Hartley

Posted on February 7, 2011 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Back in 1983 (eek!), Yellow Pages had a famous advert in the UK featuring the attempts of one (fictional) JR Hartley to locate a copy of his own out-of-print book, Fly Fishing.

So popular was it that someone actually ended up writing Fly Fishing by JR Hartley.

Well, Yellow Pages, nearly 30 years on, has released an updated version for the iPhone generation. I'm not sure it works unless you know about the original, but it's lovely once you do.

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
