    “The Basketball Diaries” is a memoir by Jim Carroll. The book is a collection of diary entries that chronicle Carroll’s life as a teenager growing up in New York City in the 1960s. The book covers his experiences with basketball, drug addiction, and prostitution. Critics have praised the book for its raw honesty and vivid descriptions of life on the streets of New York City.

    I found it sensationalistic and almost too badass. Like a self-exploitation book for bored suburbanite kids who want to feel cool.
