The Book of Nods

Jim Carroll

Jim Carroll is one of New York’s most legendary bad boy poets and writers. His autobiographical book The Basketball Diaries is like Catcher in the Rye for Generation X. His musical group was a staple of the New York Underground and this collection of poems, released in the mid-eighties became emblematic of his unique drug induced vision of life on the streets of New York.
