The Basketball Diaries, Jim Carroll
First edition, first printing
Bolinas, CA: Tombouctou / A Lamplighter Book, 1978. A few creases to the spine, else a near fine copy showing a touch of edgewear. An attractive copy of Carroll's memoir detailing his experiences growing up in 1960s New York City and his addiction to heroin. Inspiration for the eponymously titled 1995 film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Whalberg.
