Amy Fisher. My Story

New York: Pocket Books, 1993. 1st Edition. Octavo, publisher's mauve cloth over blush paper-covered boards, spine gilt, original photo-illustrated dust jacket.

First edition of notorious "Long Island Lolita" Amy Fisher’s memoir. In 1992, the 17-year-old Fisher became a household name, after she was arrested for shooting the wife of her 38-year-old lover, auto mechanic Joey Buttafuoco. The event swept the headlines, inciting a decades-long media storm that decimated the life of Mary Jo Buttafuoco, who had survived the bullet wound but was left with the right side of her face paralyzed. Conducted while Fisher was still behind bars in 1993, Weller’s interview tells Fisher’s side of the story in her own words, alleging that Joey groomed her into prostitution and was the true mastermind behind the attempted murder. Weller later stated that at the time she was tapped for the book she was in the middle of writing a novel she quickly dropped to pursue the "dream assignment." Illustrated with black-and-white photos of Fisher, the repair shop where she met Joey, the Buttafuoco home where the crime took place, and more. First printing with complete number row to copyright page. Fine in unclipped dust jacket. Item #9047
