A Near Fine copy of the ADVANCE UNCORRECTED PROOFS (within called the BOUND GALLEY) for the first edition, first printing of this highly-notable book (minor sticker residue to the front wrapper's upper right corner -- otherwise Fine with light soiling and with toning to the spine and a faint crease line to each wrapper's lower leading corner) and containing a few samples of the illustrations planned to be used in the book; Crowe's tale of his 1979 return under an assumed name to Clairemont High School in San Diego -- a School that he had briefly attended. While there, the youthful-looking Crowe (who had graduated from high school in 1972 at the age of 15) mingled freely with the students both at school and at their homes and hangouts. The book -- optioned for a film even before it was published -- provided the basis for the 1982 film of the same name starring Sean Penn, Jennifer Jason Leigh (in her breakthrough film), Judge Reinhold, Phoebe Cates, Brian Backer, Robert Romanus, and Ray Watson. The film also provided minor roles for Nicholas Cage (in his debut film) and Forest Whitaker ( in his first on-screen performance of note). In 2005, the film was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". In our experience, copies of the Advance Uncorrected Proofs for this debut novel are as scarce as hen's teeth.
