"An extraordinary achievement . . . a vision of hell so stern it cannot be chuckled or raged aside."-- The New York Times Book Review
A classic of postwar American literature, Last Exit to Brooklyn created shock waves upon its release in 1964 with its raw, vibrant language and startling revelations of New York City's underbelly.nbsp; nbsp; The prostitutes, drunks, addicts, and johns of Selby's Brooklyn are fierce and lonely creatures, desperately searching for a moment of transcendence amidst the decay and brutality of the waterfront--though none have any real hope of escape.nbsp; nbsp; Last Exit to Brooklyn offers a disturbing yet hauntingly sensitive portrayal of American life, and nearly fifty years after publication, it stands as a crucial and masterful work of modern fiction.nbsp; nbsp; This ebook features an illustrated biography of Hubert Selby Jr. including rare photos from the author's estate.
