In his teens, Jim Carroll roamed the streets of New York, shooting baskets with some of New York's best playground stars, and shooting heroin with some of the city's most memorable street characters. The Basketball Diaries is his chronicle of those years. Written while in his teens, it is a literary tour-de-force and a stunning portrait of contemporary urban street life. The characters and incidents are moving and funny and sad, but always very real. Download and start listening now!

    " This book was ok.. I use to like it a ton, but I was weird than! This book is very depressing, though it is based on a true story but its just the same thing over and over and over again. I would recommend this to people who hate swearing and crude stuff, but if you're in the mood to read something from the real world, good luck! "

    " I read this a long time ago so as with many of my ratings it may be different than what I would think of it now...it's on my shelf so when I'm bored I'll have to read it again. "

    " One of my all-time favorite books. I regret losing the original copy I owned in 1980, after about 10 or so moves. "
