Larry Clark, New York, 1983. Soft Cover. Condition: Very Good binding. First Edition. Quarto. Signed by Larry Clark at title page. A First Edition copy of Larry Clark's Teenage Lust, an autobiographical photo-diary and -documentary, with 27 pages of autobiographical text at the rear. A subversive collection, which puts a lens to the intimate sexual and social lives of various young drug addicts-turned-petty criminals. Also a nostalgic revival of the author's early teenage years, with scrapbook-style notes and newspaper clippings written by or about the Clark. "The needles and guns that had been Tulsa's key motifs are reprised here, along with the seedy glamour of the addict turned outlaw. But Teenage Lust is also about innocence and its loss, subjects that would become central to Clark's work in subsequent years." (Roth, p. 244). Self-published by the author due to disagreements with Aperture over the final photo, of a gang-bang. Spine crease as is commonly seen with this publication and slightly worn cover. A Very Good copy. (Roth The Book of 101 Books, 244 p.). C269LL.
