The classic urban urban coming-of-age story about sex, drugs and basketball, Jim Carroll grew up to become a renowned poet and punk rocker.But in this memoir in the mid-1960s, defined when he came to the age of 12 to 15, he was a teenage rebel to make a place and a name for himself on the merciless streets of New York City.During these years he recounted his experiences, and the result is an intimate diary of a candor that transmits his alternately hilarious and terrifying teenage existence.Here’s Carroll prowling around New York City — basketball, hustling, flying, hovering, hanging out, and looking for something pure.The Basketball Diaries was the basis for the film of the same name starring Leonardo DiCaprioI met him in the 1970s, and already he was almost universally recognized as the best poet of his generation.The work has been sophisticated and elegantHe had beauty”– Patti Smith
