Book is in very good condition. Cover is clean and binding is tight and unworn. Has some light shelf wear and a crease to back cover.
Inside, pages have subtle tanning. Extremely faint water stain on signed page. Visible corner crease to first few pages.
Overall, reads beautifully, with a page or two showing a few very minor spots of discoloration [see last photo.]
The illuminating, shocking, humorous diary, and sequel to The Basketball Diaries, that tells all of the sex, the drugs and the atmosphere of New York in the late '60s and early '70s. A supremely entertaining book that will expand the legion of Carroll's fans.
