  • The Basketball Diaries


He's a wise-ass kid getting wiser on the streets of New York. In the mid-1960s, during his coming of age from 12 to 15, renowned poet and rock performer Jim Carroll was a rebellious teenager making a place and a name for himself on the unforgiving streets of New York. During these years, he chronicles his experiences, and the result is a diary of unparalleled candor that conveys his alternately hilarious and terrifying teenage existence. Here is Carroll prowling New York City - playing basketball, hustling, stealing, getting high, getting hooked, and searching for something pure.
