First printing. Hoffman's striking and original first novel - the story of one of "the girls in mascara and leather and silence" who are the "property of" the Orphans gang - and of a gang-leader's notions of honor, and of drugs. 248 pp. Very good in a good only dustjacket (some bleeding from the bottom of the spine affecting some pages and the endpapers in the bottom of the gutter, and dampstaining to the bottom of the back cover of the dj, but otherwise a tight copy.) .ISBN # 0-374-238286
