"ALOHA, MR. HAND"

CROWE, Cameron. Fast Times at Ridgemont High. A True Story. New York: Simon and Schuster, (1981). Octavo, original half pale yellow cloth, original dust jacket. $750.

First edition of Crowe's elusive first book, an intimate look into the lives of six California high school students, basis for the 1982 cult classic.

Already a seasoned journalist writing for Rolling Stone, 22-year-old Crowe posed for a year as a high school student at Clairemont High School in California (changing the school's name in his book to protect both the innocent and the not-so). Crowe wrote the screenplay for the 1982 film adaptation; its surprising success sparked his career as one of Hollywood's most highly regarded writer/directors.

Book fine; tiny closed tear to bright about-fine dust jacket.
