Slow Days, Fast Company: The World, the Flesh, and L.A.

Eve Babitz


Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1977. First Edition. Hardcover with illustrated Dust Jacket. 178pp., 6 x 8.5 inches

Very Good dust jacket with faint toning and a small 1.5cm closed tear to the bottom of the back panel. Mild shelf wear to the boards. Otherwise a tightly bound, clean copy.

The second collection of southern California lore from Eve Babitz. As she remarks toward the beginning of the collection, “You can’t write a story about L.A. that doesn’t turn around in the middle or get lost”.
