Eve Babitz - L. A. Woman
New York: The Linden Press/Simon & Schuster, 1982. Advanced uncorrected proof. First edition indicated. Softcover. Paper wraps. 8vo. No pagination given but 155 pages (hand-enumerated thus in margins by author). Very good condition. Slight fuzzing to textblock corners. Author's annotated copy with handwritten notes and marginalia in black inkpen throughout, including rejected alternate title ("Neptunian Blur"), "make a movie, not war" slogan on title page, and a reminder that "the problem with being normal is that it stops you from being great" on the blank dedication page recto. There are also notations regarding the sections of the book touching on "divine gluttony," "Mexican food," and "LA parties" among other subjects. This is a bibliographic treasure that is truly sui generi.
