£198


8vo., original cloth with dust wrapper. Wrapper a little browned on spine and lower panel with a little light chipping to head of spine, usual browning to endpapers, otherwise a very good copy.


First UK edition. “From the reeking slums of a big city, from the twilight world of escape-hungry ‘junkies’, comes this striking and powerful novel of tormented adolescents - neglected by society, victimised by ruthless dope-pedlars. ‘Reefer Boy’ is the subject of drug addiction and its menacing attraction for juveniles. The hero is 16-year-old chico and his friend Angel, and the book shows their inevitable moral and physical destruction through their craving for drugs. The material of this book is sensational, but this is not a sensational novel. it is based on fact - the shameful, inescapable fact that society takes no responsibility for these lost and bitter children”. Previously published in the USA by Ballantine in 1952 as The Golden Spike.
