BROWN, Wenzell. Monkey on my Back.
(New York, NY): Greenberg, 1953. First edition. The scarce hardcover edition. Octavo. 278 pages. Important work that is largely responsible for popularization of the idiom used as the title. Although likely to be fictionalized the volume purports to be account of teen drug use in 50s New York. A very good copy in good dust jacket with some foxing to rear panel, a few closed tears, and edgewear. Whilst not uncommon in paperback format, the hardback is seldom seen.
