About This Image

Straight Arrow Books, San Francisco, CA, 1975. Fine in Near Fine DJ. First Hardback, 294 pp. Kenneth Anger's legendary Hollywood Babylon was first published in France (as many other controversial American novels) by Jean-Jacques Pauvert in 1959. Running away from the States, Anger arrived in Paris in the late '50s, where he quickly met Jean Cocteau who introduced him to every one. Anger started a movie based on the famous sado-masochistic novel "Histoire d'O" which stopped after only six days shooting. Nevertheless, he had met his publisher, Jean-Jacques Pauvert. Hollywood Babylon has been a great influence to a lot of people, including numerous French writers.
