Beat Girl.


Beat Girl.

NY: Avon, 1959. P/b original. "She was lonely and promiscuous - in that well-bred-casual way of young women who have too much money, too much time and nobody to really give a damn what they do with it. Then she stumbled onto Shelley, crude and sensual, one of the Beat Generation" (blurb).

Golightly, author of "The Wild One" and a former Greenwich Village bookshop owner, sued Truman Capote, Esquire, and Random House for libel and invasion of privacy over Capote's depiction of her near-namesake in "Breakfast at Tiffany's".

Front cover diagonal crease to top right corner, o/w Very Good plus.
