about

When it first appeared in 1971, Larry Clark's groundbreaking book Tulsa sparked immediate controversy across the nation. Its graphic depictions of sex, violence, and drug abuse in the youth culture of Oklahoma were acclaimed by critics for stripping bare the myth that Middle America had been immune to the social convulsions that rocked America in the 1960s. The raw, haunting images taken in 1963, 1968, and 1971 document a youth culture progressively overwhelmed by self-destruction - and are as moving and disturbing today as when they first appeared. Originallypublished in a limited paperback version and republished in 1983 as a limited hardcover edition commissioned by the author, rare-book dealers sell copies of this book for more than a thousand dollars. Now in both hardcover and paperback editions from Grove Press, this seminal work of photographic art and social history is once again available to the general public.

From Our Editors

The 1960s were a time of great social change. At the time, many people thought that these changes were not affecting middle America. Larry Clark put an end to this attitude with the publication of Tulsa, a book that depicts sex, violence and drug abuse in the youth culture of Oklahoma. This book is available for the first time in 20 years and remains significant today. It is essential reading for anyone with an interest in photographic art and social history.

Editorial Reviews

"Staggering, poignant, raw, compassionate, and utterly honest . . . Tulsa is a major work, almost too good . . . to be true. . . . It is an intense, visceral, wrenching statement."
