LAST EXIT TO BROOKLYN.
Edition: Sixth printing.
New York: Grove Press, (1964) dj. Hardcover - A very attractive copy of an early printing of this controversial work - controversial both because of its graphic and raw depiction of life amongst New York's junkies, hustlers, drag queens and prostitutes (it was banned in England and found obscene, although the judgement was overturned) - and because of his unconventional style of writing which is based more on how words sound than how they appear on the page. Although it is described as a novel, it consists of six loosely interlinked sections. Basis for the film of the same name. 304 pp. Dust jacket by Roy Kuhlman.
Condition: Very near fine in a like dustjacket. Original price of 5.00 on dj flap.
