One of my favorite writers died Friday.

I first read Jim Carrol's The Basketball Diaries when I was 13 or 14. I loved it and read it over and over again. I loved everything about the book. The language was so real and raw. The people talked like real people and there was no sugar coating of ANYTHING. It was gross and beautiful all at once.

Goodbye, Jim.
