City of Night

Rechy, John


Soft cover

Laminated photographic wrappers. Appears unread. Reprint of John Rechy’s groundbreaking 1963 novel: ‘a classic account of life on the edge’. *** John Rechy (born March 10, 1931) is among the pioneers of modern LGBT literature. City of Night follows a young man as he travels across the country while working as a hustler. Jim Morrison apparently references the book in the The Doors song L.A. Woman. (‘Are you a lucky little lady in The City of Light? Or just another lost angel-City of Night.’)
