Genet's The Thief's Journal
The Thief's Journal
New York: Grove Press, 1964
First US printing
An excellent copy of Genet's group-breaking work of anarchy, both social and sexual, in which he rejoices in and praises all the characters that society might fear.
Moving from prison to gutter and back to prison, with a crew of fellow gypsies, he sees only beauty in their rebellion.
