The Thief’s Journal by Jean Genet
A drift through seedy bars and burglaries and love affairs and prisons. Jean Genet was a real thief. He was arrested for the 11th time right after Thief’s Journal was published, and sentenced to life in prison. But Sartre and Picasso were his buddies, and sprung him from jail by petitioning the French President. True story.
