Living at the Movies: Poems.
by Carroll, Jim.

Publisher Information:
Grossman, New York: 1973.

A Very Good plus copy with slight discoloration to the edges of the orange cloth boards in Very Good unclipped dust jacket with a one-inch chip missing from the top edge of the rear panel. This copy is signed by Carroll. Very uncommon in the hardcover and signed. This was Carroll's first book of poetry published by a mainstream publisher. In these poems, all written before the age of twenty-two, Carroll shows an uncanny virtuosity. His power and poisoned purity are reminiscent of Arthur Rimbaud, and, like the strongest poets of the New York School, Carroll transforms the everyday details of city life into poetry. In language at once delicate, hallucinatory, and menacing, his major themes--love, friendship, the exquisite pains and pleasures of drugs, and above all, the ever-present city--emerge in an atmosphere where dreams and reality mingle on equal terms.
