Jim Carroll ↠ 8 REVIEW

Za newyorkese fra l’autunno del e l’estate del fatta in minima parte della normalità delle aule scolastiche e dei campetti di basket ma nutrita soprattutto di scorribande per le strade sperimentazioni con l’eroina e l’LSD scoperta del sesso contatti di volta in volta illuminanti o violenti con l’umanità più varia preti spacciatori poliziotti tossici pervertiti attivisti marxisti e piccoli campioni di pallacanestro – il tutto raccontato con la vitalità trascinante e l’ironia sferzante del miglior punk.

    REVIEW The Basketball Diaries 1963 1966 108 The Basketball Diaries 1963 1966It's amazing to know Jim Carroll wrote this book when he was age 13 16 not only due to subject matter but for the undeniable talent that seeps through every page With Manhattan as his playground and local junkies thieves and hooligans as his playmates Carroll spirals from mild delinuent to full blown addict believing as all addicts first do that where others fail he has it all under controlThose expecting this to be like the movie beware Hollywood takes a bunch of his stories glosses them up and presents them to you nicely gift wrapped Carroll himself does no such thing He l

    REVIEW The Basketball Diaries 1963 1966 108 The Basketball Diaries 1963 1966 The Basketball Diaries reminded me of an after school special look it up kiddies gone very very wrong And while I'm sure this book attracts adherents because it's “real” or whatever I can't say the book held much of my interest Maybe The Basketball Diaries is one of those titles that when first published 1978 was considered cautionary and groundbreaking but needs too much license and contextualization in 2011 For example these passages are supposedly Carroll's authentic although edited teenage diary transcripts If this is so well done high school Jim Carroll you get an A young man But I think there's a reason that not many teenage authors get published and honestly it's because teenagers write like teenagers You can't blame them They're teenagers Als

    REVIEW The Basketball Diaries 1963 1966 108 The Basketball Diaries 1963 1966Carroll’s diary chronicles his teenage years of drug addiction in New York City during the mid 1960s He tells the reader candidly about his addictions to glue codeine and heroin what he did to get it and all the sex he had along the way Most importantly Carroll established a consistent tone and voice full of sardonic wit and he never flinched at revealing his life at the time For better or worse – most assuredly worse – Carroll has the guts to expose his ugly self to the reader and holds no punches because he is a man who has accepted his weak and dark self This makes him one hell of a strong individual in my mind since he had the guts to face himself head on This is a very brave work to say the very leastI

    REVIEW The Basketball Diaries 1963 1966 108 The Basketball Diaries 1963 1966I don't really remember a thing about this book except that I really did like it at the time that I read it around age fourteen When the movie came out I cut school and drank some cough syrup or something and went to go see the matinee by myself This was in Leonardo DiCaprio's fleeting long past early nineties moment of hotness and in the movie which was bad he looked gorgeous and lanky leaping around on the basketball court in his Catholic schoolboy uniform dammmmmmn Whew Leo oh Leo where did you go wrong But I do remember his junkie scenes being really corny and dumb And that's about all I remember oh and then something about swimming in the East River which is gross well in retrospect maybe it's the Hudson I also remember that when they want to get codeine cough syrup they have to sign for it at the pharmacy but they don't need a prescription or anything like that they write fake names and the guy just gives
