"A look into Richard Prince’s private library and his influences, published on the occasion of an exhibition of twentieth-century rare books and ephemera at the Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris. Richard Prince: American Prayer is an accompanying volume that expands upon the presentation. Literary excerpts complement illustrations of artworks, showing the influence of the texts and Prince's book collection, including rare volumes such as Naked Lunch, Jack Kerouac's rolled manuscript for Big Sur, and editions of Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita in several languages. American Prayer reveals the source for many of Prince’s well-known series and includes texts ranging from one-sentence quips to longer excerpts." -- publisher's statement.
