Overview

A major American author of a stature with William Burroughs and Joseph Heller.?Los Angeles Times

Harry White is a man haunted by a satyr's lust and an obsessive need for sin and retribution. The more Harry succeeds - a good marriage, a good corporate job - the more desperate he becomes, as a life of petty crime leads to fraud and murder and, eventually, to apocalyptic violence.

Author of the controversial cult classic, Last Exit to Brooklyn, Hubert Selby began as a writer of short fiction. He plunges the reader head-first into the densely realized worlds of his protagonists, in which the details of daily life rub shoulders with obsession and madness. Although fundamentally concerned with morality, Selby's own sense of humility prevents him from preaching. He offers instead a passionate empathy with the ordinary dreams and aspirations of his characters, a brilliant ear for the urban vernacular and for the voices of conscience and self-deceit that torment his characters.
"Selby's place is in the front rank of American novelists ... to understand his work is to understand the anguish of America."?The New York Times Book Review

"A devastating, dark, perfect novel."--Chicago Sun Times

    words cannot possibly describe.

    i picked this up in the dusty, neglected backroom of the public library and finished it the next day. i was entangled in the plot and entranced by harry, the main character. this book is a must read! one of my all time favorites.

    Incredible, to say the least

    I dont think ive ever read a book in which the last 100 pages got my heart rate so high i was panting. Selby, the author, Creates a man that lives inside all of us, who wants to sin like us, but insead of fantsizing he feeds his "Demon", spawning the most powerdul story ive ever read.
