"I WOULDN'T LEAVE L.A. IF THE WHOLE PLACE TIPPED OVER INTO THE OCEAN": FIRST EDITION OF EVE BABITZ'S SLOW DAYS, FAST COMPANY, 1977

BABITZ, Eve. Slow Days. Fast Company. The World, the Flesh, and L.A. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1977. Octavo, original half beige cloth, original dust jacket. $400.

First edition of Eve Babitz's autobiographical volume of short stories inspired by her love for L.A.

"Slow Days, Fast Company: The World, The Flesh, and L.A. is a collection of stories about gamboling through the LSD colors of mid-70s Los Angeles and drifting into the region surrounding it—to the curious, fleeting pleasure of Bakersfield or the disappointment of Palm Springs" (Culture Trip). "Babitz's slim novel will transport you to its sunny setting, by virtue of the author's love for and immersion in the place. Her insights are shared offhandedly, showing her effortless, if glib, intellect. Read this book if you want to laugh, and laugh again later when recalling certain lines" (HuffPost). "First Edition" on copyright page.

Book fine; light edge-wear, mild rubbing to near-fine dust jacket.
